I had problems downloading files with .wmv and .mp3 extensions, from a web site accelerated by iChain, when we were using Internet Explorer. Although iChain was receiving the correct mime-type for these files, the IE pop-up window to select where to save the file was not appearing. If I tried to download these files under an application developed using ASP language, the download would proceed normally.


We tried to enable the accelerator option "allow pages to be cached at the browser", but that i didn't fix the problem. So, we used the tips from TID 10075939, in the Fix Field, and I asked the developer to remove the lines containing the following parameters:

Pragma: no-cache
Cache-control: no-cache,max-age=0,must-revalidate

This solved the problem, and the download worked normally using IE. Apparently this problem was caused by an IE bug with SSL pages.
