I use Cubby from LOGMEIN to host a company manual for employees.  It is a pdf file.  When you want to share a PDF file or any file in Cubby you create a link that is a URL.  If I create this link and drag it to my desktop I can use any browser and open the link which brings me to the Cubby file I have shared.  Here is the issue.  I have an FTP site and I have added this URL to it.  Once I have logged into the FTP site I can see the link.  IE is my default browser and when I click on the link it brings it up just fine.  When I use Firefox or Chrome the link does not work.  It just shows me some text that says what is in the attached word doc.  If I open up the FTP site in windows explorer I can click on the link with any browser and it works fine.  Any ideas?

It sounds like you have to be logged in to the FTP site.  IE might 'automatically' log you in where Firefox and Chrome can't.

The only way I can see the url link is to be logged in.  I login on all web browsers to see the FTP site.
