I am using Magento verion 1.4.0.1 and I had this issue. I had enabled Paypal Express Checkout payment method. When I choose this method on checkout, I was redirected to Paypal website but order data was not displayed there.
The main reason in my case was due to applied discount to the cart. I had created a shopping cart price rule and applied it to the cart. And, when I choose Paypal Express Checkout as payment method, the paypal website would show empty order data.

Scenario:
I have a downloadable product. After I order the product and when my order is complete, I am able to download the product links from ‘My Downloadable Products’ menu in Customer Account section.
I go to ‘My Downloadable Products’ section and I click on the links to download. However, the PDF file opens in the browser itself. I would like to have the feature that asks to download / save as instead of directly opening in the browser.
