PDF opening problem

Hello,

I recently installed the newest version of Firefox. Under Applications, I have PDF downloads set to "Save File." When I download a PDF, it saves it to my downloads folder. However, when I then try to open a PDF (any PDF in my computer, not just the one just downloaded), it opens in the Firefox browser. I then have to right click on it and choose "Open in Adobe." This process repeats EVERY TIME I download a PDF from Firefox (which I do almost every day). And before you ask, I already checked my computer settings, which have Adobe as my default program for opening PDFs. The opening-in-browser problem still occurs every time I download from Firefox.

Please let me know how to resolve. Thanks!
