Can't download or open PDFs via links on web pages? Clicking links to PDFs in web pages only results in blank "new" tabs opening in Firefox...WHY?
Links to PDFs on webpages only opens a "new" tab which is blank. I cannot download or open PDFs. This started a couple of weeks ago.

I've been having this same problem, but I get rapidly opening blank tabs, one after the other until I close the window. I installed the Ninite Reader and reset Firefox, and I still have the problem. I've tried older versions of Firefox, starting with addons disabled, and now this. Any help would be appreciated.

Ah! Bingo! Thank you so much! I changed the defaults for opening PDFs in the Options section. Clicked a PDF, and it opened. You're awesome the-edmeister.
