Steps to reproduce
Some xlsx files do not open properly in edge.
https://s3.amazonaws.com/agb-test-bucket-public/a.xlsx —> Tries to open as plain text
https://s3.amazonaws.com/agb-test-bucket-public/b.xlsx —> Stalls… no download
a.xlsx is a small file with data inputted.
b.xlsx is a completely blank excel file. I opened excel, saved it as xlsx and uploaded it to s3 with default options.
- If SmartScreen is disabled everything works fine.
- I have tried adjusting Content-Type headers and it did not help
- Both of these links work fine in IE11
There is a very similar issue but it pertains to PDFs instead of XLSX files. https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/issues/12166637/
PLEASE NOTE: The behavior of PDFs appears to have been fixed between build 40.15063.0.0 and 41.16257.1000.0. However these xlsx files do not work in either build.
