Hi and thanks if you can
I have a quirk in my application : i can’t make send_data to stream for
download (disposition=attachment) an image over SSL with internet
Works fine with FF (ssl or not), works fine inline (ssl or not, IE or
FF), works even fine without ssl (still IE).
But when i try to get the link through SSL, IE somehow gives me a :
“cannot download blabla from someurl, not able to open this internet
site, requested site either unavailable or cannot be found. please try
Of course it doesn’t work later. The only thing i could find about this
is from the rails api on send_file : “IE versions 4, 5, 5.5, and 6 are
all known to have a variety of quirks (especially when downloading over
see my source below. I’m using lighttpd with fcgi, nothing fancy.
qr = blabla (edit) send_data(qr.to_blob, :filename => qr.code+'.png', :type =>
‘image/x-png’, :disposition => ‘attachment’, :streaming =>
‘true’, :buffer_size => ‘4096’ )
suggestion, quirk-remover-spray ? (I’m desperate…)
