Step 2: Leave the bullet clicked on Export to CSV (spreadsheet format) and click the blue Export button.
Step 3: After you click the blue Export button, you notice that nothing happens. However, a little gray shield with a red X icon should have popped up on the right side of the URL bar. Click on the icon.
Step 4: Once you click on the icon a box should pop up. Click on Load unsafe scripts. The page will refresh and the icon will disappear.
Step 6: Once the page has refreshed, you will see a box from eBay pop up. Select Yes, continue with the listings I was working with and click the blue OK box.
