Ditto here. This is a problem.
I have the exact same problem, however it ONLY happens when I login with a user that doesnt have System Admin rights. The SysAdmin account works as expected in Chrome.
Also experiencing a similar issue --
For us issue seems to vary client to client (some folks have the issues other's don't)
Issue persists in chrome 26, 27 and 29 dev
Sys admin rights don't make a difference
We are encountering this on several new laptops that recently went out to our employees. It occurs in Chrome and Firefox. We've contacted Tableau Support and recieved this response. It has worked for us. Perhaps it can for you as well.
Thank you for contacting Tableau User Support. I understand that on
