After clicking the page just refreshes, and I can't change this option.

  • And why is there the big "Start Download" button there? What would you be downloading? – Ward May 11 at 17:40
  • have you blocked any supporting script domains? i think sstatic.com and cloudfront.com (not sure of exact domains sorry) cause the refresh when blocked. @Ward the button is for a copy of all the data currently stored for that purpose for your account, which is a legal requirement in some places. – ocæon May 12 at 12:36

    indeed, i just checked and i'm getting the same behaviour! when i first joined i disabled it just fine, then re-enabled it as i didn't mind it and was curious to see what would change. now we're locked in! ~creepy music~ – ocæon May 12 at 12:42
  • @ocæon no escape. We are doomed \(〇_o)/ – Suvitruf May 12 at 12:54
  • @Ward The download is in case you want to see the data SE has collected about you. It's just done in the name of transparency. – forest May 13 at 23:14

Sorry about that. I just pushed a fix and it will be deployed with the next production build (at this rate, should be sometime tomorrow morning.)
