Having had a look (as it's a wiki-idea-page-engine), I conclude that the automatic
start of download only does not work any more by accident - 
somehow it doesn't go to ?download#linux when I visit it,
but entering http://www.getlazarus.org/setup/?download#linux into URL field still does.

Please consider removing the automatic click on the download link PERMANENTLY and SURELY.

Going to relevant OS section IS OK.

Forcing users to immediately decide whether to save or not, IS NOT.

My £0.02p.
