@Big Mike:

I encountered all attachments having their filename changed, when downloading.
To illustrate, I attached the indicator "SignalBars.zip" to this post,
if I hover my mouse cursor over the attachment, it shows a serialise number name instead, which is the new name being downloaded to my pc.
See screenshot:

It is an IE11 problem. It's just the most recent in a long list of problems with IE. I'll see if anyone has posted a solution on vbulletin, but it might just have to wait until I replace vbulletin in 2014.

Hello All,

There is a quick and easy fix to this problem. While you can't uninstall Internet Explorer, you can uninstall updates and, fortunately, IE11 is an update.

Open the Control Panel (Start > Control Panel). Click on "Uninstall a Program" (Programs > Uninstall a Program). On the left margin there is a selection "View Installed Updates." Click on this and scroll down to "Internet Explorer 11" under the "Microsoft Windows" heading. Uninstall "Internet Explorer 11" by highlighting it, right mouse click and left mouse select "uninstall." Once completed, you should be asked to "Restart the Computer." Once that completes, you will be running IE10 for which there are no problems downloading or viewing attachments on futures.io (formerly BMT).

Would those of you who have experienced this problem in IE11 please do a new test, and let me know if it has now been resolved or not.

Thanks. Hopefully someone else can confirm, and then we can count this one as resolved.
