Downloading a folder doesn't work

workspace

#1

In the path, in the side bar file exporer, when I would right-click on a directory and select download, my browser would convert the folder to a zip file and allow me to download. Now it just takes me to a web page that looks like a JSON. For example, I want to download a folder called md5. When I right-click and download, this is where I get redirected to:

https://vfs-gce-usw-122-1.c9.io/vfs/4283372/9cZXuihAZ2MRawuV/home/md5/node_modules/md5/?download=md5.zip

How do I right-click and download a folder as a zip?

This is happening to me too. Does anyone have a solution? This seems like it should be a basic function.

I had the same problem too, but it seems to be working at this moment.
