In our application, while downloading PDF file getting "Failed - Network Error". The same functionality is working fine in IE and FF.

Chrome version: 62.0.3202.75

Operating system: Windows 10, 64 bit

Screen shot attached[^]

In the attached picture you can see in the bottom left side under the attachment "Failed - network Error" is showing.

What I have tried:

Googled about it but didn't find much help. Someone was talking about increasing content header length, even that is tried but nothing happened even application stopped working.

Picture is just a blue blob. Also, is this your application or Chrome; your question is not clear?

Issue is not with application because same functionality is working with IE and FF, also in old versions of Chrome but not the recent versions of Chrome. In my attached picture you can see the downloaded file in the bottom left, it's showing "Failed - Network Error".

OK, so there was a network error. But there is nothing in that message that can help anyone here to diagnose the problem.

As you can see in attached snap, there is no more information available, otherwise I would have mentioned it here or tried to google it.

Change PDF MIME Type in Web Server from "
" to "
This problem is when is enabled gzip compression and/or HTTP/2

Found solution, in latest versions of Chrome after adding "Transfer-Encoding" header it starts working.

Response.AddHeader("Transfer-Encoding", "identity");
