Clicking on the Case Study 1, the PPT file is located on another web site. No matter how Helper Application conifigured, it loads the binary file as text. Clicking on the Case Study 2, the PPT file is correctly downloaded and PowerPoint is launched. Here the PPT file is on the same server as the page in which the link is. Note: the link is set to load into a new window for both these files. Cannot reproduce this when using Adobe file or Word file. See example ADobe file loaded from the other server. It works ok. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. on my machine 2. on a collegues machine using Mozilla on XP 3. not able to try on any other OS Actual Results: As explained in details. Behaviour of loading this PowerPoint file differed depending on what server the PPT is located. Expected Results: When loading the PPT file from the other server, it should have respected the application helper configuration and downloaded and loaded into Powerpoint.
It looks like both case studies are on the same server and both would load if I had a app to load them in. If they where on diffrent servers my first guess is that the second server was sending the file as text/plain which according to some spec is to be displayed as plain text.
