We applied this fix to our local version of Jasper Server Community Edition:
(It corrects the naming issue and also allows direct opening or saving of the pdf rather than opening in a browser window.

In ReportPdfExporter.java, setAdditionalResponseHeaders()


response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline; filename=\"" + getFilename(context, "pdf") + "\"");

replace with:

// allow the download dialog box to open:
response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=\"" + getFilename(context, "pdf") + "\"");

// fix for opening PDF in IE6:
response.setHeader("Cache-Control", "must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0");


In view-report.js, exportReport()

comment out or remove these lines so that a blank html window doesn't open:

setTimeout('setSelfFormTarget()', 500);
