RadButton navigation does not work after Chrome 83 update

Hello All,

I'm using a couple of Radbuttons to enable users to download some forms (in Word). This has stopped working in Chromium based browsers for some reason (new Edge, Chrome). It still works in Internet Explorer. No errors in the browser DevTools and no error on the server either.
It also does not work in Cassini (VS2017).

Not sure where to go from here - can anyone confirm/deny?

TIA - Marcus.

code stub:

<telerik:RadButton ButtonType="LinkButton" RenderMode="Lightweight" ID="btnName" runat="server" Text="Button Text" CssClass="TemplBtn" NavigateUrl="~/assets/someform.docx">
         <Icon PrimaryIconCssClass="rbDownload" />

Hello John,

There seems to be some further Google Chrome updates affecting this issue. We can continue the discussion in the new Feedback portal item:

Running Chrome 84 and 2020.2.617.40 (just downloaded last week).
Issue still there.

I need a linkbutton to open a new window while still performing postback.

Hello ,


The recent version of Chrome v83 came with a bunch of security updates:

Apparently, it led to some issue related to requests. Here are some samples:

These changes affect the following RadButton configurations and the navigation action stops working:




Option 1:

Use the RadLinkButton instead which is the dedicated way of creating navigation buttons:

Option 2:

Wait for the fix which will be available with the upcoming service pack version 2020 R2 SP1.
