Has anyone else noticed that sometimes a page or an element in a page opens the Save As dialog on your browser, instead of loading/rendering?

I have seen this happening quite a bit in the last week or so, and have some suspicions. Let me know your experience, regardless of browser...

the web site not the proxy sets the content disposition. transcoding is not normal.

are you using ie? ie has historically had bugs with "guessing" the content type of files rather than listening to http.

Chrome. I intentionally left the browser information out, to see if anyone else was seeing this with any browser without trying to influence.

It may be the browser then...

I was having this problem the other day, I really wish I could remember the website but it was happening consistently on whatever site it was.

Using Chrome and IDM.

I mostly use Opera and haven't had any problems like this. Using TC ADSL.

I used to sometimes get it when using IE at work, but that's on Vodafone and I suspected the browser.
