Symptoms

When performing File > Export or opening a File Attachment from Forms the new Internet Explorer session starts as expected, but instead of showing dialog to Save/Open the output file it renders the login page (11.5.10) or an error message (R12.0/R12.1).

Release 11.5.10

The IE session shows AppsLocalLogin.jsp. Reviewing the parameters passed in the URL include: 

&errText=Your+session+is+no+longer+valid.+Please+login+again
  


Release 12.0/12.1

The IE session shows following error message:

fndgfm.jsp error : The current session is invalid. Unable to proceed without a valid session. 

Client PC uses Sun JRE 1.6.0_18, 1.6.0_19 or 1.6.0_20 for running Forms Applet and the browser is Internet Explorer. Using Firefox the problem is not reproduced.
