I have a web app that the user clicks on a button to open a new browser window which should display a PDF document.

In all web browsers i have tested this works without any problems -  except in IE8.

In IE8 all i get is a message that says "done" in the status bar but no PDF.  

If i refresh the page the PDF is displayed.

Is there some rendering issue in IE8 with content like PDF?

soozh--What version of Windows are you using?
If higher than XP why not use a higher version of IE?

my users are stuck with the version they have and cannot upgrade for compatability with other applications.

Is this something new?  Try a System Restore to date before the problem started.

It sounds to me like the web app with the problem is not compatible with IE8.  Each browser has different standards for performing.  
Have you tried validating the code?
