PDFs generated by POST requests broken in Chrome

Review URL(s):



Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Chrome 34.0.1847.137, Adblock Plus 1.8.1 with EasyList.

How to reproduce

  1. Go to
  2. Click the button labelled "click me" at the left.

(This breaks PDF previews in Dropbox, e.g., but the URL above is a much simpler test case.)

Observed behaviour

Chrome makes a POST request that loads the PDF momentarily (you may be able to see the contents, but it's mostly just flickering.) It then makes a GET request to the same URL - but the URL only allows POSTs, so it returns a 404.

Expected behaviour

Chrome should make a single POST request and display the PDF.
