For all browsers I've tried so far except for Firefox, FMS15 web client will not download an container based file.



Server: Filemaker server @ AWS Windows Server 2012 R2

Client: Webclient (see browser details below)


Shared database (attached):

* Container field (populated with xlsx, docx, etc)

* Right click->Export field contents OR script export field contents



* File naming dialog pops up [accept or rename -> ok]

* Ready for download dialog pops up

* Clicking download appears to try something (window status hints show attempted activity)

* Nothing downloads (for fails on browsers -- succeeds on browsers get the actual file.)


Fails on:

* Chrome (51.0.2704.103 (64-bit) macOS & windows]) [some unconfirmed client versions]

* Safari 9.11 (macOS)

* Edge (25.10586.0.0 windows]


Succeeds on:

* Firefox (47.0 windows)
