If I am not wrong, the exact problem is, you failed to find the download button in your Safari. If you are running OS X or its later versions, this article will help you out. https://www.macworld.com/article/3153064/browsers/where-to-find-safari-s-downloads-list.html

If that works for you, you can thank me as well
