Solution file problem with Chrome 72

    I am working with Chrome 72 and D365 Version 1710 (9.1.0.1471) online
    I just created a solution this morning and Chrome is surrounding the solution name with quotes! I tried it again with Firefox and had no problems:

    I RECOMMEND that you DO NOT CHECK the version of Chrome you are running because that will trigger an update. Chrome 72 seems to have multiple issues.

    Hi @Nelson Johnson - Yep I saw the same thing yesterday and reported it in the other Chrome 72 thread.
    It's a way more esoteric error than the one re form headers are missing!

    Did you report it to MS? The 'CR172792 - Form headers not rendering in Google Chrome' advisory in service health does not mention this issue.

    We are facing the same problem. Appeared with the new Chrome version.

    We are facing the same issue with downloading attachments on records.

    Chrome will rename the file with 'filename.format', which caused the format issue.

    Any potential solution here? I had suggested users to use Edge for now.

    Hi all, just a heads-up that this appears to be an issue with Chromium and it has been verified and assigned for resolution:
    https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=927366

    The same issue exists for data exports (e.g. "Export to Excel").
    The simple workaround is to edit the file name in File Explorer and remove the quotes.
    I am glad to see that it has already been submitted in a Chromium bug report.

    Just to give a quick update: we experienced the same issue last week, as we checked this morning, the bug disappeared. It seems it has been resolved.

    Although this may have been resolved for D365 CRM Online users, this may remain an issue for on-premise users indefinitely. Per the Chromium bug report, Chrome is not planned to be patched to resolve this, at least for now, and who knows when or if Microsoft will provide a hotfix. Therefore the simple solution I implemented for our on-prem systems (and it works like a charm) is the RewriteRule suggestion in comment 50 of the Chromium bug report: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=927366#c50

    FYI, in case it helps anyone, in my case I added the RewriteRule through the the ISS graphical interface on each of my web servers, and found that I had to remove the """ in the RewriteRule Value string - I used "{R:1}{R:3}{R:4}" instead of "{R:1}"{R:3}"{R:4}".

    Thanks for this information Jesse.  We were encountering something similar with CRM Excel exports today (getting files with the name .xslx' ) and this appears to be the cause.

    Try this, an extension to Google Chrome to rename the attachments as you save/open the file.

    A simple solution, fixing £1000's of software.

    I wrote a Workaround for our Company because we were getting a lot of people submitting Help Tickets.

    I decide to write a Blog in this Community for others as well.  I am also including the Word attachment.

    I've been seeing this in Edge also for what it's worth.  Possibly caused by a MS update rather than a Chrome update?
    I haven't tried the Rewrite solution yet, but thanks for posting.

    We opened a ticket with Microsoft about this issue a bit ago and they told me that they have their developers working on a patch which will address this problem.  The date I was given was March 18th for the patch release, so hopefully that can help fix this long term.  Microsoft is at least aware of the issue and working on it for On Prem instances.

    I've developed a FREE Chrome plugin that resolves this issue.

    You can download and install it from here:
    Dynamics CRM File Download Fix
    Google remove preview
    Dynamics CRM File Download Fix
    Resolves an issue with Dynamics 365 file downloads. Provided by Reenhanced.com

    In the interest of full transparency, here is the complete source code for it so you can feel safe recommending this to your clients:

    chrome.downloads.onDeterminingFilename.addListener(function(downloadItem, suggest) {
      let newFilename = downloadItem.filename;
    
      if (newFilename.startsWith("'") && newFilename.endsWith("'")) {
        newFilename = newFilename.substring(1, newFilename.length - 1);
      }
    
      suggest({ filename: newFilename });
    });

    Please enjoy!
