      Description

      After upgrading from 1.8.1 to 1.8.4 it seems that externally hosted PDFs are not downloaded. The only way they can be accessed is using the direct link that is shown below where the PDF should be shown.

      If you download the file directly it works fine. Locally hosted PDFs are fine as well as other externally hosted files types, ie excel documents.

      Basically when you visit the page in a copy of IE7 the PDF object loads but you never see the actual file. I have also tested this onMoodle 1.9 + (Build: 20080306) and the same occurs.
