Hi all,



i'm developing a web application. The user is presented



1. a link (href) to a dynamically created PDF that opens in a new window via the 'target' attribute



2. A JavaScript menu that opens the same page via window.open()



Everything works fine for all versions of IE. Now we switch the protocol from http to https (orion application server, self generated SSL test certificate):



1. href link still works for all versions of IE



2a. window.open() works for IE 5.00.3315.1000, 128 bit, SP2

2b. IE 6.0.2600.0000 update Q319182 opens the 'File Download' dialog instead of displaying the pdf file.
After selecting 'Save as' it fails saying 'Internet Explorer cannot download (url) from (host).

Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later.'

(Content-disposition, Content-length, ...) with no success.



Anybody knows of a workaround?



Thanks in advance
