How to enable downloads in kitkat

I'm sure I have over looked something but after updating to kitkat I can no longer download any files though any browser, have tried chrome stock and dolphin which all worked before the update. I have an outlook Web account for work so need to use the browser to access and download attachments. Any help welcomed. Thanks

There is no special procedure for enabling download in kitkat. It works just fine.

1) Make sure your internet access is good. Check download with another PC/tablet/phone.
2) Check if you can install apps from google play store
3) You may need to do a factory reset or reinstall kitkat firmware.

Thanks for the reply, there is no issue with Internet connection or downloading apps, this is purely a browser issue I think. I remember having this issue before on honeycomb I think but was able to fix with es file explorer as it had an option to enable downloads. I also have a note 2 on kitkat which works fine.

maybe because you are not rooted and try to write to sdcard ?

Thanks for the reply, not rooted but root not needed to download attachments from email client on browser. Does not explain the Samsung account failing to sync?
