    I have a Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5 that I'm trying to root. Every time I click on the symbol on the towelroot site, multiple blank tabs spawn and don't stop until I click on the home button for google. The apk file does not download either. Please help!

    Have you tried using Dolphin browser? Fit some reason chrome has problems due to security settings of the phone.
