I put in a valid pptx reference on my browser. My intent was to download it as a file. The browser stripped all the slashes and protocol pieces and took the string as a search. The same http string would have resulted in a download in Chrome or IE. If I use pdf, the download occurs and I am asked if I want to save the file on the device.
Since there is a PowerPoint viewer on the device (Z10), this would be useful. I guess I will have to copy the file from the computer.

But the download works fine from a link in email

The MIME type for PPTX should be
If you are not seeing this, then the browser may not know how to handle this content type and try to open it like a text file.
Are you the owner of the web server? If so, you can troubleshoot this problem by setting up the correct MIME type in the server settings.
