Comment #6 on issue 2889 by rajas...@gmail.com: Cannot update diff using IE8
It looks like IE8 attempts to download the file when the mimetype is
application/json and that is what the server is sending. There are many
posts in StackOverflow around this and the answer seems to be
send "text/plain" instead of "application/json" if its IE8 and everything
The other option is to include a "X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff" which
instructs not to sniff the mimetype and serve the file as is. (Reference:
Item 4 in the Defenses section in that post). Since IE is the only one to
allow X-Content-Type-Options, can we include this in the WebApiResponse. I
already see a block in WebApiResponse to convert mimetype to 'text/plain'
if its not an ajax and there are uploads, but since this is an AJAX call,
it wouldnt pass through this block ?
