If anyone cares, this happens due to the following line of code in download.js:

document.getElementById("stable_td" + i).style.removeProperty("background");

IE, in its infinite wisdom, has decided not to support the
removeProperty method and instead has a removeAttribute method.  Or,
you can just set "background" to null or empty string.  Ugh DOM stuff
sucks, but yea this should be fixed.
