PDf file cannot be viewed/downloaded via IE 11

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

I've been trying to download a service manual online and it comes in a PDF file. However, I cannot open the file from IE 11. Whenever I click on the file, it tries to download the generation link and not the file itself. It works in other browsers. Has anyone else encountered the same problem? What did you do to fix it?
