If you do something like:
wget -bc --max-redirect=10000 file
And you collected the url by hitting = when you wound up on the link you wanted to download and checked for the url: statement near bottom of output and did a mark and cut operation on that url and then pasted that into the wget command for file you would have wget probably write its output to wget-log the first time and you could then run wc -l wget-log every so often and make sure line numbers increase. When they don't increase any longer, then it's time to do:
tail -3 wget-log to get the file name that was downloaded.

When I use lynx to download a file with a gz extension and then try to
uncompres it with gunzip I get garbage. This has happened with html.gz
files. It does not happen with tar.gz files. If I download the file with
wget it uncompresses properly. But finding it with Lynx is much more
