I tried to test this in one of my "real applications", and I can't reproduce it. So you probably have something in your theme for example, which interferes Notifications. At least I would check that first and after that checking other possibilities.

OK for future reference if there's anyone that runs into the same problem the issue is.
The code read like this
            getUI().getPage().open("http://" + result, "_blank", true);
            if ( result.toLowerCase().contains("error"))
                Notification.show(result, Type.HUMANIZED_MESSAGE);
                Notification.show("Download has begun", Type.HUMANIZED_MESSAGE);

Chrome seemed to ignore the invalid url and continue whereas IE opening the invalid URL caused subsequent operations on the page to fail. Moved the .open method to work only if url was valid and sorted the problem out. Hope this helps someone. Thanks for the assistance provided it really helped me troubleshoot this.
