Latest Quicken update broke my transaction downloads - Version R19.55 doesn't work

I successfully downloaded transactions as recently as 6/15/2019. Today, when I launched Quicken, it updated itself. Now, it will not download transactions using the .QFX format. I tried 3 different browsers and 2 different financial institutions.

If there is a workaround, please advise ASAP. The one listed for the issue with 19.44 doesn't work.

    I tried restarting Quicken, tried rebooting, tried Chrome and Firefox and IE11.I tried Credit Union and Credit Card company downloads. Error message says "Quicken is having trouble opening [file path followed by filename] where the filename is assigned in the download process. Don't know if it helps, but the auto-created file name shows 3 dates: "20190101_20190706_20190706" in it. Don't know if that's causing the problem or not. Screen shots available if needed.

    UPDATE: I tried shortening some file names, and files started importing okay finally. I then rebooted a couple more times and now I can at least download from my Credit Union without having to take intervening steps anymore. Seems like it took a few reboots for Quicken to sort itself out and start working right. Will post again if the problem reoccurs or remains a problem with other institutions.

    Thanks! The solution in the post regarding r19.44 didn't work for me until after a few reboots, but now things are working normally so far :-)

    I'll keep the clean uninstall/install/update link handy - I may need it!
    I appreciate the quick response.

    UPDATE: uh oh, as a new poster they won't let me quote links yet. See Sherlock's original post if you want the URLs.

    Unchecking "Override high DPI scaling behavior." Seems to have resolved this issue for me.
