There are few excel files in my SharePoint 2010 library which is a public facing site. Now when I click on the files from Chrome browser, the files get downloaded in my machine but when I try from IE(IE 11) there is a prompt to OPEN, SAVE and SAVE AS. Of which, if I click on OPEN I get a login prompt.

I tried adding the site in TRUSTED Site zone but still the issue occurs. If I click on cancel of login prompt the file opens without any issue. Question is why I am getting this login prompt in IE and not in another browser.

Is it some IE issues?

Please share if any has info on this behavior. Thanks.
