For a long time it was known that IE sends multiple requests for PDF and other MIME types that needs a plugin
Now our server process gives exception because IE suddenly decided to send HEAD requests
Here is the request.
Key Value Request HEAD http://myserver.com/document.pdf HTTP/1.1 Accept */* User-Agent contype Accept-Encoding gzip, deflate Host myserver.com Content-Length 0 DNT 1 Proxy-Connection Keep-Alive Pragma no-cache
Has something changed in the processing of other MIME types?
