Explorer shows custom error when using <error-page> for error 500 in tomcat

Hello!
I setup my tomcat to handle exceptions and errors, and to redirect to custom pages.
However, explorer shows a default error when presented with a 500 error. I know I can disable this on the explorer, but I'm looking for a way to do this on the server side.

And if there's a way to make spring handle  it, better yet

I found that increasing the HTML page size to more than 256 bytes makes explorer think that the page is prettier than the default, forcing it to use my custom page, instead of the explorer default.
