MVC4 , error never seen before

I get the weirdest error. I have included a screen shoot. Have someone experienced something similar? All my code logic look correct, not sure what will cause this in MVC.

Error when I compile in a browser
ASP.NETC#

This was when I was using Chrome. When I run the app in IE it is prompting me to download my controller? Doesn't make any sense....

Can you please post the GET method in your controller for this view?

Here is my code for my get method.

The problem is try to populate a drop down list. I get the error as soon as I try to populate the viewBag.libraryId

ViewBag.libraryId = ReturnLibraryFolderSelectList(libraryFolderRepository.ReturnList(ClientId), package.libraryFolderId);

Here is my Base Controler that the ReturnLibraryFolderSelectList is from:

  public SelectList ReturnLibraryFolderSelectList(IList<LibraryFolder> libraryfolder, int libraryFolderId)
        {
            LibraryFolder gbl = new LibraryFolder() { description = "Select a Folder", id = NEW_INT, inactive = false };
            libraryfolder.Insert(0, gbl);
            return new SelectList(libraryfolder, "id", "description", libraryFolderId);

        }

  public class LibraryFolder : BaseModel, ILibraryFolderRepository
    {

        public int id { get; set; }

        //the value of the description for the dropDown

        [Display(Name = "description")]
        [Required(ErrorMessage = "description is required")]
        public string description { get; set; }
       
        [Display(Name = "Client")]
        [ForeignKey("client")]
        public int clientId { get; set; }
        public virtual Client client { get; set; }

        /// <summary>
        /// whether the language is inactive
        /// </summary>
        [Display(Name = "Inactive")]
        [Required(ErrorMessage = "Inactive is required")]
        public bool inactive { get; set; }


        public IList<LibraryFolder> ReturnList(int clientId)
        {
            return db.LibraryFolders.Where(l => l.clientId == clientId && l.inactive == false).ToList();
        }
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

At what point in the ReturnLibraryFolderSelectList method does the error occur?  You should be able to drop a breakpoint in the method and step through the code.  Are the input / output values what you expect?
