Opening file content resource (Excel) of JasperReports Server / Tomcat with Internet Explorer displays binary data inline

  • Content-Type / Accept / MIME HTTP headers issue?
  • JasperReports Server (5.2.0)
  • running on Tomcat 7
  • clients tried
    • Internet Explorer (9.0.8112.16421 64bit (default below) and 11.0.9600.17105 64bit)
    • Firefox 28.0
    • Chrome (34.0.1847.131 m)

see comment under question above ... this answer should just trigger possible subscribers if the comment above does not and sadly I can't retag it to v5.5.0
