I am using following code for downloading file and after downloading file its opens my site page, but its working only in Firefox browser.

Its not working in other browsers.
Response.AddHeader("Refresh", "3; url=");
Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";
Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=myfile.pdf");

I think your problem is that the browsers dont support the refresh response header for application/octet-stream responses.

I found the best solution if you need a page load after a download is to put the download into a hidden iframe.

Follow my previous answer on same type of question.
how to call Response.Redirect after Response.TransmitFile[^]

As the second method is browser dependent, so better go for the first approach, which is implemented in many modern websites these days.
