Running Slackware Linux 14.0 (K3.2.29) and using Firefox 17.0.8.
I just got on to the website and downloaded both the main and helppack RPM tarballs for v4.1.3 with no problem.

I notice that they added torrent options. Are you sure you are not clicking on the "torrent" link, which requires bittorrant to download. I don't know what your browser may do with a ".torrent" file rather than an http file. There are 3 links in each of the download blocks. Make sure you are clicking on the top line, which is the RPM tarball link, not the "torrent" or "Info" links on the second line.

Note that I understand some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) hinder or prevent bittorrant files. Maybe yours does. I suggest trying the regular tarball, not the torrant file and see what it does for you.

Just as a follow-up, I just went to the main download site for my version
(64-bit Ubuntu Linux), which is

When selecting the "Main Installer 196 MB (Torrent)" option, I receive a
page containing the following:

This is essentially the behavior I have experienced at least since the
release of version 4. I experienced the same thing earlier this morning when
attempting to download a Windows version (in Oracle's VirtualBox), and the
same behavior is present when choosing the LibreOffice built-in help

I hope this helps someone figure out what the issue is ....
