Description

Environment

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

How to reproduce

  1. Go to https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/4xyi60qpplsftxz/adblock.html
  2. Click the button labelled "click me" at the left.

(This breaks PDF previews in Dropbox, e.g. https://www.dropbox.com/s/a5ghg6j0wmn7a9e/hello.pdf, 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.
