ScienceDirect - problem downloading PDFs

Users of Internet Explorer 9 and Adobe Reader X (as on the student network) are currently unable to download PDFs using the 'Save As...' button while viewing an article online.

A workaround is to right-click the PDF link and select 'Save target as...'

Alternatively, using any other web browser should avoid the problem.
