Hi Simo,

IE 9.0 is an old version of IE and isn't that well supported anymore.

See here :

You should probably use a newer version of IE or a different browser (like the message says).

Best regards,


Is it possible to disable the preview functionality? We recently upgraded to confluence 5.7.1 and now our links which would previously download the pdf are opening this warning which is far from ideal for our users.

Is there a possibility to disable the preview function?
