This happens because the data opened as a tab inside Safari. Thankfully, it's easy to fix in just 1 minute.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Right-click on the page Safari has opened, and click Save Page As.
  2. Another prompt will show up, allowing you to choose the file name and where you wish to save the file.
  3. In the next prompt, change Format to Page Source. You will notice the file extension in the file name line changed to .csv
  4. Change the file name as needed and select where you want to save the file.
  5. Click Save, and you're done!

💡TIP:  Don't like the extra steps? Using RocketReach on Chrome, Firefox, or Edge will automatically download the CSV file.
