We have 5 new servers running Microsoft server 2003 R2, IIS6 all with the same wierd issue that only seems to appear with google chrome. ???? I have stripped out any application level issues by creating sample files as follows, andy help or direction to look would be most appreciated!!!:

Open chrome in url type in:

http://dev1.mystudentsprogress.com/MSP/clients/blah.pdf
Notice it “went back” in history to a blank pake

-------------------------------------

Close chrome now open again and in url type in:

http://dev1.mystudentsprogress.com/MSP/clients/blah.jpg

Worked perfectly i.e. download the .jpg

Now leave browser open and type in:

http://dev1.mystudentsprogress.com/MSP/clients/blah.pdf
Once again goes to page -1 in history or a blank page

-------------------------------------

Close chrome no open again and in url type in:

http://www.yahoo.com/

Now leave browser open and type in:

http://dev1.mystudentsprogress.com/MSP/clients/blah.pdf
Goes to page -1 in history or back to Yahoo.com

-------------------------------------

This only happens if there is /MSP/clients in the url *and* the document is a pdf i.e. try the following all work fine:

http://dev1.mystudentsprogress.com/MSP/clients/blah.docx
http://dev1.mystudentsprogress.com/MSP/clients/blah.jpg

Or the pdf without the /MSP/Clients:

http://dev1.mystudentsprogress.com/MSP/blah.pdf

It will work fine even with a “singular” client i.e. :

http://dev1.mystudentsprogress.com/MSP/client/blah.pdf

For what it is worth, I'm seeing the exact same thing on my computer - very bizarre.  I'd recommend you report this to Google as a Chrome bug.

Here is how to report a bug.

It ended up being a mime type definition for .* in this subdirectory cuasing the issue, removed the mime type and it works now
