Chrome not downloading PDFs on Marshmallow

by jpiasetz   Last Updated April 02, 2016 08:04 AM

I migrated from a Nexus 5 to a Nexus 5X using "Set up nearby device". On the Nexus 5 when I visit turtletrader.com/pdfs/babe-ruth.pdf in Chrome it offers to download the PDF. On the Nexus 5X it doesn't do anything.

I was able to fix this by the following:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Select Apps
  3. Select Chrome
  4. Clicking Disable
  5. Enabling again

Then when I try to download a PDF it asked for permission to access the folder.

As pointed out in the comments a better fix is:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Select Apps
  3. Select Chrome
  4. Select Permissions
  5. Enable Storage permission
