    Hi im sure this is a quick fix.

    im on my buddies macbook and i cant download anything!

    nothing comes up in his download list, I just click the links and it shows the url up top then refreshes back to the main download page.

    I dont believe he has any 3rd party software for his downloads

    when i click the activity window it comes up as cancelled

    ?? please help

    I've never seen this issue before but sometimes a server misconfiguration is to blame on the site you're trying to download from. If this is the case you can attempt to bypass it by Option-clicking the file - this tells Safari to download it to your downloads folder, even if a normal click would cause the file to be rendered in the browser window.
