    Question download offer on our homepage doesn't work

    Hi all,
    on our website we offer word-documents for downloads. It occurs very often (but not always!) that people can download the documents (generally openend in the browser itself), but when they want to use the "back"-button of the browser they get a windows-message saying there was an internal error and Internet Explorer has to close. (our site is www.edf-feph.org if anybody wants to test her/himself)

    Does anybody know how I can solve this problem? I have no idea how I can handle this and would appreciate any help!!

    Thank you very much!!

    I've come across this problem before as well, but in my case it's MP3 files opening in browser windows instead of Word Docs. What I did was put a little paragraph at the top of the page saying :

    "right click on the link and select 'save target as', then save the file to your hard drive."

    That's the best solution I have. Hope that helps.
