In Microsoft Excel, I go to a cell and create a hyperlink to a PDF document as follows:

http://mysite.com/MyDocument.pdf#page10

Unfortunately, when I click to it my web browser(Chrome) goes to the following link:

http://mysite.com/MyDocument.pdf%20-%20page10

which of course returns 404 - Not Found. This only works for Internet Explorer. How can I make it work for Chrome/Firefox?

Strangely, when I use any other kind of permalink (which does not point to a PDF, for instance), it works fine. For instance the following works:

https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.5/topics/db/models/#using-models

Which PDF plugin are you using for IE (where anchors work), and are you using the same for the other browsers too? –  Karan May 27 '13 at 14:01
    
The documents are opened with Acrobat Reader X inside the browsers. No browser-specific plug-ins are used. –  bmm May 27 '13 at 14:04
