When downloading variant and patient data from the Configuration area, Internet Explorer allows you to choose to open or save the file. It says the name is \"download_php?action=view_all\", and calls it a \"HTML Document, 3.31 KB\".
When choosing \"Save\", Internet Explorer returns the error: \"Internet Explorer cannot download download.php?action=view_all from <hostname>. Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later.\"

Using Firefox, it just works. Firefox will also show the correct name for the file: \"LOVD_<gene>_<date_and_time>.txt\".

It seems like this only happens when SSL is enabled (https). With normal http, the file is identified as a \"Text file\" and downloaded normally. It\'s actually a known bug in Internet Explorer.
