having developed and tested diligently on Firefox and IE6, I am now not so pleasantly surprised to find that my ror pages are refused by IE6: "Some files can harm your computer. If the file information below looks suspicious, or you do not fully trust the source, do not open or save this file." File name : <whatever> File type : From : <my server name> Would you like to open the file or save it to your computer? [Open] [Save] [Cancel] [More Info]" Unfortunately, all I'm doing is making a call to a ror method, which uses render :update do |page| page.replace_html(<something useful>) end Is this a problem that others have come across? Everything works perfectly from my local IP based testing server. It works fine remotely on Firefox, just as it does locally. Safari is OK too. I am sure that there's something obvious here: I've set the server to be a trusted site, and it makes no difference. Security set to low. The problem seems to be that IE sees the request as a foreign file type, and not an xmlHttpRequest...the page is running a Google map in it, and it works fine, so AJAXiness per se is not the issue, I don't think. Any ideas?

A bit more: the problem may come from appended session data on the method name, but I can't prove it. In case that helps.
