Force Downloads on Amazon S3

Files uploaded to S3 using a 3rd-party uploader are not affected by the “Force Download” option in WP-Filebase Settings.
In your bucket manager, you have to change the metadata of the S3 objects to set the following HTTP headers:

Content-Type: application/octet-stream
Content-Disposition: attachment
