EDGE should open inline PDF content to an incoming POST request.
The same exact request works in IE 9/10/11, Chrome and all other major browsers

Actual Results:

EDGE will download then when you click open Edge will display a local copy of the file stored in the users downloads folder

Chrome\FF will display the PDF inline and the user doesn’t have to click open or clean up multiple copies of the PDF stored in the downloads folder.
