A client has just discovered some weird behavior regarding secure PDF
attachments on a secure site. That is, $EnableDirectDownload=0; is set
in the farmconfig.php, so the attachment link looks like
The link works just fine in Firefox, but Internet Explorer 7 chokes on
it. If you click the link, IE downloads the file but does not display
it. If you tell it to save the target file, it says, "The file could
not be written to the cache." JPG attachments are not affected.
The obvious quip would be that anyone concerned about security shouldn't
be using IE, or even Windows, but I don't think that would go over well.
;-) Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance! --Ben
