When we create a WebKitDownload, it's totally dissociated from the main resource that you were looking at when you decided to download the thing. That's different from other browsers. It means there's no referrer header, and some websites rely on that to guess whether you're a human or a scraper to block scrapers. I'm not sure if it's even possible to fix WebKitDownload....
