Browser Issues

This section describes possible browser-related issues that you may encounter when deploying and using GAX.

Blocked Downloads in Internet Explorer 9

After you confirm the download, you are redirected to the main page and then have to repeat the download request. You can adjust your browser settings to prevent this scenario.

This issue is not GAX-specific; it is related to your IE settings. To prevent IE 9 from blocking your GAX downloads, you must disable the download information bar for GAX downloads.
