    can't access some websites

    I have this weird problem that causes chrome and firefox to download some pages (like: or - please notice this happens only on some websites and not all)
    instead of simply viewing them. the file that get downloaded isn't even a html file, but an unknown format.

    In Internet explorer the pages will show a weird until i flush the dns cache and then internet explore will start displaying it until the next time (chrome and firefox still wont show the pages)

    using developers tools I managed to find that the error I get is 407.

    my computer is windows 10 (enterprise) and is part of a domain that uses a proxy server. only my computer is suffering from this problem (I checked my user on a colleague computer, and had my colleague test my computer), which is part of the reason I am convinced that this is a windows problem and not a browser problem. It is a clean installed computer so I don't believe it is a corruption, virus or the sort.

    I can't determine what the problem is, can anybody help?

    Do you use other download manager that installs add-on\extension into the browsers besides of the default download manager? If yes, try to disable the add-on\extension for a test.

    flushing the dns cache doesn't help any more with internet explorer anymore.
    it seems that this problem randomly regresses back into not working at all

    also- I can only capture the 407 error with ie and firefox not with chrome. chrome will simply download that weird file and not capture any network traffic.

    I also discovered that I get a 301 error.
