Download file from IE (FTP) RRS feed

    I have a "simple" question that some of you hopefully can answer. When logging on to any FTP server with Internet Explorer, and left clicking a file that I want to download everything is fine. But when I right click the file and press "Save target as", I get the message  "The login request was denied".

    When I look into the FTP log (\windows\system32\logfiles) I see that when I left click, the client is using the credentials I supplied, but when I click Save target as it is using an Anonymous user. Anonymous logins are not allowed in any of our FTP servers.

    Have found several kb articles and so on, where I have tried changing some settings on my local IE without any luck. Firefox works perfectly, since it is using the credentials supplied in each case.

    Anybody knows what is causing this - and is it possible to solve?
