Default [Q] Market Web Installs never start downloading.

Market web installs from "market android com" never start. ('m not allowed to post links)

Under "My Devices" in the settings page it shows my Atrix, It has a "Registered on" date (today) but it doesn't have a "Last Used" date (it shows a dash).

I have followed all the suggestions on the help page. (log in, log out)

My Market App version is 2.3.2.

Google Talk works. The Market App works. Clearing Data and Cache for the Market doesn't help any.

I'm signed in with a regular Google account. (not an apps account)

Any suggestions?

This might sound obvious, but have you tried restarting it or resetting it?
Nexus One - Froyo 2.2 - AT&T (Retirement)
Moto Droid - VZW (Retirement)
HTC Droid Incredible - VZW
Apple iPhone 4 - AT&T

Yep. Lots of restarts.

Does the market work on anyone else's Atrix or is it just me?

I read somewhere that if you open Google Talk and sign out then sign back in, it should get the market web installs working because of a communication problem.
Current & Previous Devices:
HTC One 32GB Silver (Rogers) - 4.1.1 - Ordered, Shipping Next Week
Samsung Galaxy SIII Pebble Blue (SGH-I747 AT&T, Unlocked) - 4.1.1
ASUS VivoTab RT 32GB - Windows RT

HTC Incredible S (S710a Unlocked) - 2.3.3 HTC Sense 2.1
Sony Ericsson Xperia X10a Black (Rogers) - 2.3
Blackberry Pearl Flip 8220 Black (Rogers)
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi - 4.0.4 ICS

Yeah, that's on the help page. Didn't work.

Empty market cache, and uninstall market upgrades (if any). Had the same problem before with other phones, I do not think this is atrix specific.

Getting the market to upgrade afterwards required some manual steps as well. Too lazy to look that up now though, just google it.

I emptied the cache and uninstalled updates. On the first launch I got the old market, on the second launch it had upgraded back to the new one. I also tried a reboot. Still doesn't work. Good idea though, thanks.

Bump! Any fixes for this? I'm having the same issues. The Market web store even lists my phone being last used on Feb 25 (the last day it was pushing app downloads from my computer). However, when I download apps from my phone, it shows up on my account online.

I thought I was having this same problem, but I was in battery saver mode and had auto-sync disabled. After re-enabling it, the downloads just began automatically.
