PowerPoint Read-Only notification when opening through IE RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am faced with an issue and hoping someone could help me.

    When PowerPoint file is opened by a second user from shared drive they would get Read-Only notification specifying who has the file locked.  However if this user tries to open same file Through IE (either clicking on the link or pasting file path to the address bar) they would not get Read-Only message.  The interesting thing is that this is the way it works in IE but not in Firefox.  Firefox would display the read-only message. 
    I believe that either way PowerPoint is opening file as read-only however not getting notification when opened through IE is confusing.

    Does anyone know why this is happening or maybe how to fix it?

    Thank You
