Google downloads

Using Windows 7 I find that sometimes if I click on the link for an attachment in Google Mail (the paid for version), that instead of the download dialog box appearing I find that Google Mail reloads to the same email.

I am looking for a pattern to help you here but at present it appears to be random.

It is happening on my desktop and my laptop.

Not sure about attachments, But it seems like something is (or was) wrong with GMail in the recent few days.
I'm constantly getting endless/infinte redirects (In both IE & Avant) when attempting to access GMail. Not sure whether it's just me though. The only "workaround" I could find was clearing the cookies. It has resolved the problem for a while but I'm still getting this from time to time. But the problem I'm having apparently has nothing to do with Avant since this also happens with IE. Even though by default, On Windows Vista/2008/Seven, Avant & IE are using different cookies.

I found the common cause of reloading Gmail was where files with unknown extensions exist (i.e. *.sql.z)

The same error occurs in IE8 but not in Chrome so it is not an Avant issue.

Sorry to waste your time.
