This particular issue has been isolated to the Internet Explorer browser only and is an Internet Options setting that you need to change. To correct this issue, launch Internet Explorer and go to Tools > Internet Options > Security > Local Intranet > Custom Level.

  • Automatic prompting for file downloads = Enable
  • File download = Enable
