You said it gives a warning in Firefox, but IE doesn't allow page to be
pulled up.  I am pretty sure this is a security setting within IE (and can
be disabled or changed to prompt) and not anything you can control (however
the user/client could).  You would have to remove the warning totally to get
around it.
