comment What could keep Chrome from downloading files?
THANK YOU! This solved it. Specifically, I used the content disposition settings for .htaccess that are mentioned in 99seconds.net/2009/09/force-a-pdf-to-download-with-htaccess

We already have fallbacks in the form of FLV and M4V. For the affected users, downloads fail for all video file types.

I will definitely check into this. I set those headers in .htaccess for video downloads, for exactly the reason you guessed.

I'll check into this, but...Would this somehow not affect Chrome users on Windows 7? It seems like it would affect all Chrome users if this were the issue.

@w3d: It is consistent - all users known to be effected always have this problem. Will check on their browser setting for downloads, but if you're getting at changing things so that they choose the directory instead of having it auto-save to their downloads directory, that is not the problem. I'd be satisfied with either of those behaviors.

@laebshade: Nothing is displayed at the bottom of their Chrome window.

I would prefer a Save-As dialog. We have other links that take them to imbedded streaming players. The file is a WMV file. Users are not redirected to about:blank - that is simply what displays when they open in a new window/tab. I honestly don't know about the response headers. I believe they are correct, but I could be wrong. I don't know how to set them, but I'll edit to show what mine look like (according to Chrome's developer Tools). Though this is on my system, where the downloads are working...

comment How to avoid “click here” links
Doesn't making "share with you" into link text create the same problem as using "click here" in that it's completely meaningless?
