Steps to reproduce

Send the following headers in response:

Content-type: application/pdf

Content-Disposition: inline; filename="09620389_Cash_Requirements_Fri_Dec_18_14_25_00_EST_2015.pdf"

When pdf is returned, the browser tab contains the correct filename but when you right-click and select "Save As", the filename is now “untitled.pdf”

  • Is there any update from this issue??

  • In our case, we were not including the file extension in the URL so our workaround was to add it to the URL. I believe this still to be an issue thought since the header did include the extension and it worked fine in all other browsers. Edge should look at the header for the file name.

  • Thanks Doug for your information.

  • We have the same problem, is this going to be fixed?

  • It seems as though our workaround no longer works in the latest version of Edge that we have (38.14393.0.0). Could someone from MS speak to this issue?
