      **Summary of the issue**

      Downloading a file from Alfresco Share which has whitespace after the file extension (Example - "test.txt test") replaces the whitespace with encoded character '%20'. So the downloaded file name becomes - "test.txt%20test". The issue only occur when downloading files of this nature using Internet Explorer. Other browsers such as Google Chrome and Firefox downloads the file as is (i.e. "test.txt test")

      **Steps to reproduce**

      1) Startup ACS 5.2.3 or 5.2.4. Navigate to Alfresco Share (using Internet Explorer 11/Edge) Site document library/ Repository and upload the document that contains whitespace after the file extension. (See attached document for reference - 'test.txt test')

      2) Download the document using Download action. 

      3) File is saved as 'test.txt%20text'

      **Expected Behaviour**

      Files must be downloaded as is without replacing the whitespace character with URL encoded characters in the filenames

      **Observed Behaviour**

      Whitespace characters are replaced with URL encoded characters when downloading the file
