    Hey guys I've noticed recently some odd behavior regarding google chrome and my download stacks in the dock. I have my download stacks folder set so that the most current downloaded object shows up as a preview (ex. if its a pdf a photo of the pdf appears).

    However recently I've noticed that when i download some .rar files or mp3's, the preview in the stacks icon is just a blank text document. its not until i click the stack and it fans out that i see that a preview of my downloaded file (ex. mp3 will show its album art). when i click the stack again and the items fan back into the stack, the preview once again turns back into a blank document image instead of the corresponding mp3 image.

    i've never encountered a problem with this with safari. Has anyone ever encountered this error before?

    It happens to me especially when am downloading a large file and in the process of downloading I launch the download stack and the particular file is rendered as a blank file.

    I think this is normal because the file is in the process of being downloaded and OS X can't recognize the file until it completes. Also sometimes even after the file is downloaded, I notice it previews as a blank file, but upon launching, the behavior is normal.

    I don't think this is attributed to Google Chrome, as I have experienced the same with Firefox and Safari, unless it is an exception in your case.
