Steps to reproduce

URL:

Repro Steps:

I am using IE11 as a default browser, but as I know, the problem is WinInet, and not only IE browser.

look at this URL’s, two links to the same picture.
http://a7.org/MailAttach.aspx?act=pictures&image=460640
http://a7.org/pictures/460/460640.jpg

Internal, the first and second url add “Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=’img460640.jpg’”

Now go to other Windows program, like Paint, click file > open, and paste the first URL. The filename recived from WinInet and shown on title is "MailAttach.aspx". the second one works.
when I am using program that restrict file extension, I could not upload the file and need to manualy download > save > upload.

Until IE9, the filename was "MailAttach.jpg", that not correct but works as the extension was correct.

Expected Results:

filename of temporary file must be used from Content-Disposition header, and not from filename itself.

Actual Results:
