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.
