    I clicked on the export button while looking at my site in Safari and instead of downloading the file it just reloaded the page. I tried to look around and find an answer to this but didn't find anything. If I open my page in Chrome I get the export I expect. 


    I downloaded 2015.1.429 to make sure it wasn't an update. 


    I was using Safari because of Chromes battery life behavior, but I know the users of the site I'm working on do use Safari.

    I am not exactly sure what is causing this behavior. Could you provide us more details about the Safari version, the device on which the issue is observed and OS version?

    We may also need a sample demo - that would help us identify the cause and to suggest a solution.

    same problem here with Safari and Excel Export....

    Test Case:

    => Edit this example => Run, first problem IIS Exception. 

    Okay... cut it down:   http://dojo.telerik.com/asUcI/2

    Now on Chrome, it works.... on Safari => Cannot POST /result on Dojo, on my server it
    ends in a redirect because of the tried post.

    The post is actually the failed download of contentType application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet
    with base64 payload of xlsx file.

    Tested with newest Kendo Version + Safari 9+

    Should I open a support ticket?

    Kind regards,

    Oh by the way. Are you planning to have also pictures in the excel export like on PDF?
    Maybe it's solveable with some kind of forumula and url by cell value?

    Hello Otto,

    I am copying my reply from the support ticket that you opened:

    Safari browser on Mac does not support the option for saving a file. To handle this, you need to use a server-side proxy, which will stream the file back to the user. This is explained in more detail in the documentation here:
    Browser Support

    With regard to exporting images in the Excel file, there are no immediate plans for including this feature. You can check out this thread where this feature was last discussed and vote for the feature suggestion in the feedback portal here.
