FASTA save button missing in Safari #714
The FileSaver.js library that jbrowse uses sort of demonstrates the type of issues that are seen with safari https://eligrey.com/demos/FileSaver.js/
Instead of saving the file, it creates a new tab with the content, and then the user has to save the contents to a file themselves.

Well, back 3.5 years ago when we made this feature, it couldn't be made to work on Safari, because Safari didn't support creating files on the client side. But that may have changed with newer versions of Safari in the years since.
@cmdcolin you're on mac right? do you have time to look into 1.) why the button is actually missing (it's supposed to be grayed out/disabled), 2.) whether the download functionality can be made to work in recent versions of safari, so we could maybe enable it for new Safaris. Assigning it to you for now, if you don't have time, just un-assign it.
