Browser downloads - Opens, but Fails on Details

I have run across another head scratcher with respect to Browser downloaded files.


Browsing around and finding a PDF of some report or instructions.

Touch/click to download it.

Arrows show the download -

Touch to open - works fine -


Can find it in the My Files / My Nook / My Downloads.

Touch/click to open and read.


If I would like to add it to My Shelf for easy access.... now it gets interesting.

Normally, a Touch/Hold with bring up a Menu with:

    Read - View Details - Add to Home - Add to Shelf


However, after downloading a file, it is NOT immediately avail for this menu,

until after a hard restart vs a sleep restart...

or maybe just getting a different download will fix the "recent" download.


ie - Touch/Hold on a "recent" download yields an error message;

"Failed to obtain the item details"

All the other My Downloads files open and display the Menu just fine.
