I am a developer and have been particularily annoyed by the fact that when opening certain document types (i.e. PDF) files you are always presented with the 'Open, Save, Save As' dialog even though it renders in a trusted Active-X control. The problem is that it cannot simply de disabled as of IE9 and you must apply a registry fix to remove the prompt so that it does not ruin the user experience. I understand the reason for the prompt and have a suggestion for future enhancements that would allow the security to remain in place without having to disable this completely.
Build in an integrated PDF viewer that is render-only such as the one included in Chrome.
Any site we have added to the 'Trusted Zone' should in fact be trusted and we should not be asked.
Give us the option to determine trust of certain document types on a site-by-site basis.
This is kind of an annoying problem and I personally would like to see a better work-around that still maintains the security of the browser.
post any suggestions to http://connect.microsoft.com/ie .... these are public forums.... all feedback/suggestions goes nowhere here.
1. PDF support is a plugin in chrome see chrome:plugins
2. Sites can contain third-party content from other sites not listed in your Trusted Sites list (eg. faceplant) Tracking protection prevents third parties 'profiling' you to serve targeting advertising. Chome is owned by Google. Chrome has never implemented tracking protection and google was recently fined for breech of privacy by exploiting a known flaw in the Safari browser (Chorme is a child of Webkit/Safari)
3. ActiveX control/BHO developers can implement this for the document types they support. For Adobe PDF select
recommended: configure Adobe Reader to NOT USE web browsers to open PDF documents. (see the Internet tab of Adobe Reader preferences)... Group Policy adm files are available to do this on enterprise networks.
