This issue happens when the ViewState size is relatively large and the connection speed is not that fast. Hopefully, the workaround is rather easy. Follow these steps:
1) Go to the web.config of your web-site.
2) Find the appData section
3) Add the following setting:
<add key="AllowCustomProgress" value="false" />
