The title is a copy of knowledge base article for IE 9:

Problem has been solved by Microsoft in February and it doesn't exist when user has IE 9 installed, but with IE 10 installed WebBrowser Control-based application is not working properly - use of "Content-disposition: attachment" HTTP header does not force file download. Nothing occurs.

Thank you for the feedback. This issue does not reproduce in Microsoft Edge. We're not presently working on feature bugs in Internet Explorer outside of security-related issues. At this point we are resolving this issue as Won’t Fix.
Best Regards,
