downloading mods from the browser app instead of the web app.
The app functionality is different than the website - it it intended for modpacks more so than mod management. This is specific and unique to minecraft, since the game cannot launch without collecting the mods into the modpack format for launching.
Create a custom profile, then install the mod into that.
And mods can be downloaded by hand, same for modpacks.
