    ColdFusion 11 cfcontent failing


      I have a stumper.  Installed CF11 on our test server. Did some regression testing and am running into an issue. I have a .cfm that downloads information to Excel. It renders fine in CF10 (and prior versions). In CF11, it renders fine in IE10 and in FireFox. It however fails horribly in IE8 and since most of our users are still required to be on IE8, this is a showstopper.


      Here is the code that sets up the excel dump - page name is show_table.cfm:


        <cfif IsDefined('URL.ExcelDump')>

              <cfheader name="Content-Disposition" value="filename=#Session.utilstablename#.xls">

        <cfcontent type="application/vnd.ms-excel">




      The website runs under SSL.  I have already turned off these lines - with no change in the below error:


             <META http-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">

             <META http-EQUIV="cache-control" CONTENT=" no-store,no-cache, must-revalidate">



      This is what I expect to happen - IE10 does a similar open/save panel:


      CF 11 FF download works.JPG


      here is what happens in IE8:


      CF 11 IE8 download issue.jpg


      Note that the filename on the fail is the same as the .cfm page that is trying to do the download. It's like it does not see the cfheader setting it to the expected name (which for this particular download should be er_quality_items_view.xls). I tried commenting out the cfheader to make it take the default, and no change to the error.



      It looks to me like this is a bug in CF11....any suggestions on how to get around this failure?
