Topic: Button to import FDF data has problem

I have an acrobat form with three buttons. The "Print" button prints the document with the filled in fields, the "Save" button saves the FDF file locally to the end users hard drive, and the "Open" button prompts the user to browse to the FDF file and load the data into the document. I have encountered a strange problem however.

You open the document, fill out fields, save it and close the browser, then when you launch the browser again and attempt to "Open" the FDF file with the button it just fills the fields without prompting you to browse to the file. This problem is corrected in Netscape if you launch and close Acrobat and then reload the browser. In IE not even this works though. I want the "Open" button to ALWAYS prompt the user to browse to their locally saved FDF file.
