Latest version of Chrome and single quotes in downloaded files from CRM

    Anybody else seeing this? We're getting reports from users who were recently updated to Chrome 72.0.3626.81 that Excel downloads from our CRM 8.2 instances are getting weird filenames. Chrome is appending a single quote to the beginning and end of the filename, which makes it an "unknown file type" in Windows.

    For example, a filename of test.xlsx becomes 'test.xlsx' when downloaded, and is unusable until the filename is manually changed.

    I've confirmed this behavior myself after updating my own Chrome to the latest version.

    Yep - it is also affecting solution exports.
