    Started happening only today, and for both Core XF + XFMG.

    I download all of them before they're public and didn't see that either.

    Had someone download a style off my site throwing the same error.

    I just downloaded the beta 4 on W8.1/Chrome without a special message.

    It looks like just an over aggressive warning message in the latest Chrome release.

    Resource interpreted as Document but transferred with MIME type application/x-zip.

    From reading some old threads online, it seems you should set the content-type header to application/zip for .zip files.

    Just wondering if this is it?

    Yeah it just happened for download of my addon as well which is in an attachment. Seems to be happening for zip packages.

    Fairly common behaviour from chrome in my experience. Especially on uncommon files. A beta release would likely qualify except if they really go by file name then each customer is unique...

    Could this be any sort of anti-virus browser plug-in at work here too?

    I tried downloading it using the latest Chrome on Windows 10, no problems whatsoever using default settings.

    This warning is triggered by Chrome whenever you download a .zip-file and some other file extension using the latest version. Instead of hitting "discard", just press the downwards pointing arrow right of it and tell chrome to save the file whatsoever. Experiencing it a lot lately.
  18. I'm pretty sure that this happens because of the file name...


    All of the added points (decimals) lead chrome to believe it is a harmful file type.
