Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We are having an issue with a third party application running in IE9 which I don't believe is application specific but browser/security related.

Essentially when someone is trying to add a note to a task in the application the application wants to run an "addtasks.do" file which IE9 promptly pops up a "What program do you want use to run this?" dialog. (I believe a .do file is a Java servlet)

In Chrome carrying out the same action results in the note being added successfully.

Does anyone have any idea why IE9 won't run it and how we can address the issue?
