Stop Firefox from saving PDF

When clicking on a PDF link, Firefox asks what to do. I opt to view the file in the PDF viewer, and do not select to Save it.

Invariably, Firefox saves the PDF to my Downloads folder before opening it.

This wasn't the case before. This clutters my Download folder as I open a lot of PDFs.
