Can you post a link; if not: Can you show the contents of the php file being downloaded or at least the first and last 15 lines? Not sure why the method would make the diff yet here we are. You could check the variables_order string in your php.ini file. And have you tried adding enctype="multipart/form-data" or enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded" (more suited for GET) to the FORM tag ie <FORM id="formID" action="some_action.php" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data"> The reason I asked the last part is because you stated that it works fine if you pass via GET and not when you use POST and because they are both encoded differently and it could be that the server isn't set correctly to decode $_POST data and so does the download instead. More details about how you are collecting the form data and how the data is then processed would be helpful.
