I have run into a problem with the WebBrowserComponent with Macs. We have made an application that has the browser embedded, We would like the browser to be able to download a a file that is has its link in a website. Something like:
For some reason this link will not download the file. Is this a security thing with apple? The same application on a PC will download the file normally.
We thought that a solution to this would be to have the link open up a separate browser window (outside of the app), put the link for the file in that window and have the user download it from there, however the embedded browser will not allow a link to be opened in a new window. Nor will it do it if you right click on a link and select “Open Link In New Window”.
Does anyone have any thoughts about why this might be happening? Ideally the solution would not require us to build a new version of the app, but if we have to then we have to.
We have tried running the application on multiple macs with many different OS’s (including the newest 10.5.7) with no different results.
Any Ideas would be helpful!
