IE 11 Window.Name getting blanked on browser back button action after download RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am having to use window.name to check against a value saved in the session. When there is a mismatch, the page is like disabled. It has been working fine in most cases (postback, refresh etc), but recently it has been found that when a file is downloaded and the browser back button is clicked the check fails in IE11. It is because until the onunload the window.name is retained. But after the return from server code, in onload the window.name is blanked out. The server resets the window.name after a download when back button is clicked.

    This does not happen in chrome or firefox. and maybe even the older versions of IE. Can you please check if this is the expected behavior.

    Thanks,

    Lakshmi
