At first glance it looked as though my issue was one that could be resolved by implementing the fix mentioned here but I am still encountering the issue being that html links are being downloaded rather than opened. The html pages themselves contain a fair amount of Javascript, would this cause this behaviour?


Even if the web app has it's file handling set to permissive, it can be overriden at the library level.

It can be set via powershell like this:

$site = Get-SPSite("http://sbx01/sites/Harry")
$web = $site.OpenWeb()
$list = $web.GetList("http://sbx01/sites/Harry/Shared Documents")   
$list.browserfilehandling                      // list the current value  

$list.browserfilehandling = "Permissive" 
$list.browserfilehandling                      // list the value again 

It can be set in other ways as per this reference:
