weird things afoot.

i'd been prototyping a site and had a couple of reports that output in pdf
format. everything has been working fine so far. i added in some ssl last
night so that pages/scripts that set an $enableSecurity flag dynamically
change from http to https (avoids mixed security messages for things like
resource links, etc.). now, everything continues to work fine with the
exception of the pdf reports. there are no errors reported but no report
data is displayed.

to do further testing, i commented out the header()s call to set the content
type, disposition, etc. so that the raw pdf content would display in the
browser as text...just to make sure i was still getting output at all. turns
out, i'm still getting the content. i can also copy it from the browser,
save it to disk, and open it from there and see the report data just fine.

that leads me here. if you've run across this before or have an idea about
what the cause is...or, how i should approach further troubleshooting, i'd
really appreciate your input.

tia,

me

which confirms that this is a browser issue (I'll bet you're using
MSIE) not a PHP problem.

This might be of help:
