IE9 RC and RTM: Cannot download files from OWA or WebDaV with SSL (both using https:) and more HTTPS issues****


  • I cannot download files through Outlook Web Access any more after I have installed IE9 RC on a client W7 x64 SP1 Ultimate Dutch system.

    Only after removing the SSL option in IIS 7.5 on my OWA web-site (exchange 2010) I can download again. (It is my own Class 2 SSL certificate).

    By the way: connectecting to a Web Dav (https) doesn't work either.

    Thanks for helping.

    Edit 26/2: more SSL/HTTPS issues found (see post 4)!

  • I suspect that your firewall has blocked SSL. How does it work if you disable firewall? If it works, you may refer:

    SSL and Firewalls

  • No firewalls inbetween blocking, and https://../owa with SSL works normally, only when downloading attached files it does not work with IE9 RC.

  • Also tried to download Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with IE9 RC.

    This site is also SSL and is not working, after I entered my useris/passsword!

    Must be something **** WRONG with IE9 RC and SSL/HTTPS ***. If I switch to FireFox on the same computer I have no problem at all.

    Who can also confirm this issue in IE9 RC?

    Update 26/2: This problem only exists with domainusers and domaindaministrators on W7 Client in Domain. If logged on with the local machine administrator account on The W7 Client it will work (maybe group policy issue?).

    Help needed on how to solve this. Thanks.

  • Same behaviour if I enable HTTPS in windows live and enable SSL (fulltime)

    When trying to download attachments I will get the massage: GetAttachment_aspx?file=8b64df36-a0c5-4d72-9373-96.....

    If I disable HTTPS, no problem at all!

  • I have the same issue.  IE 9 Beta and RC cannot download files from many secure websites.  I get the same type of link issues -- with Compatibility Mode on or off.  I end up having to use Google Chrome!  At the office, I stick with IE 8.

  • Make sure the option "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" is NOT checked under Tools > Internet options > Advanced

    I had this option enabled in IE8 and did not have any issues downloading from HTTPS sites. Upgraded to IE9 and that's when the issue started. Unchecked that option and now I can download from HTTPS sites just fine.

  • Thanks this solves the problem.

    Maybe Microsoft should document this issue better!
