send_data/send_file does not open a save as dialog box

Hello,

We are using JRuby 1.5.1/ruby 1.8.7/Rails 2.3.8 with a GWT front end.

I'm having an issue when attempting to send a server side .csv file to
the user using rails send_file.

my code is:

send_file(path_to_file, type=>'text/csv')

While this is returning fine with an http status of 200, the client
side save as dialog is never opening for the user to receive the file.
Any ideas why this isn't working?

same problem. save_file fails. no user dialog box to open or save the
file.

send_file(path, :type => "application/pdf", :disposition => "inline" )

works in Rails 2
fails in Rails 3 with Activescaffold and webrick or thin.

I am also interested in any ideas why this isn't working?

file.

inline means that the browser will try and display inline if it can -
I'd try attachment instead
