No security check when downloading using TOR

When trying to download files likes videos or images using TOR the files sometimes fail to start downloading. Usually, this occurs when the check asking to confirm the download doesn't appear.

I have had this error on websites that I regularly visit and there is nothing in those sessions that I do differently that would cause this bug to happen.

Definitely not a website bug.

What does "no security check" mean?

I'm guessing it's a combination of "the websites you're using are broken" and "the exit relay you happened to pick couldn't handle that extra stream right then".
