Disadvantage when your enemy is prone

I noticed that after knocking an enemy prone instead of being at advantage, I was at disadvantage.  I have a screenshot if needed.

Were you using a melee or ranged attack? Ranged attacks have disadvantage against prone targets, whereas melee attacks gain advantage.

Good call @Trazzm.  I totally forgot about that.  Thanks for catching that!
