Steps to reproduce

Some xlsx files do not open properly in edge. —> Tries to open as plain text —> 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.

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.
