Problem downloading file with IE6

Post by waters »

Hi
I am having a problem in downloading non-text files using IE6 while
with Netscape 7.2 it works perfectly.

I would really appreciate if anyone could provide any help.

thanks

Waters

I think that this has been bugged already. The problem is that the file download turns caching off, but IE needs it on if it is to launch the appropriate application. If you turn caching on, large files may fail due to lack of cache space.

Hi ,

I had the same pb but for all office documents.

My env is:
- IE 6.0.2900++
- Mantis v0.19.2
- https protocol.

A quick fix has been given by fredrikr in the referenced bug n°: 5039 (http://www.mantisbt.org/mantis/view.php?id=5039).

Please find hereafter the solution:
Comment out line 81 of file_download.php v0.19.2
81: //header( 'Pragma: no-cache' );

nb: I have no problem with Firefox 1.0

Hope this help.
