File downloads that open in a browser window are recorded as a page view








We are migrating from DTM to Launch

We are using Adobe Analytics extension v1.8.5

AppMeasurement version 2.22.0.

Allowing the extension to manage the library for us.

"Track download links" is selected


When a browser "downloads" a file, and saves it, everything works fine.

The Lnk_d is recorded and sent to adobe analytics.


HOWEVER, if a browser clicks on a download link AND opens the file in a browser window (typically, a PDF link) the Adobe Launch java script appears to download as well, a beacon is sent, and the downloaded file is also recorded as a page view.

The "lnk_d" is recorded correctly (appears as a downloaded file as well as a page view)


How do we fix this?MKS Screenshot 2021-01-18 141618.png
