Category:- Spent time: -
Target version:-


When selecting any PDF and then download the browser opens its internal PDF reader and times out. If the internal plugin is dissabled (chrome://plugins/) then the file gets downloaded.
Chrome Version: 23.0.1271.64 m

The file instead of getting downloaded is opened in a tab as text (its opened as uuencoded, the file header is proper for a PDF and the content is in a zip)
FF Version 16.0.2

IE can download the PDF file properly (it doesnt try to use a MIME Type to handle the file).
