If you are using the Chrome browser, files are listed as "unconfirmed" while the they are downloading. Other browsers may do a similar notification. Very large files take additional time to download. Please check chrome://downloads/ in your browser to see the progress of your download.

An example is this file over 2GB. It initially shows as unconfirmed

When viewed within chrome://downloads/ it is clear that the download is in process.

When the download completes, it will then show normally.
