Want PDFs to open in Firefox except when they're shipping labels downloaded from eBay
I have a really niche case which there's probably no solution for but I want to ask just in case:
I'm happy with the behaviour of Firefox opening PDFs as it does currently except in one case: eBay shipping labels. When I buy a shipping label on eBay it presents two buttons: one is open and one is download. When I click download it both downloads and opens in a new tab. I can disable Firefox opening PDFs to stop that but then that affects my experience every time I try to open a PDF everywhere else.
Is there some way that I can stop Firefox from opening PDFs but only when they're opened from links that look like this? https://www.ebay.co.uk/ship/single/api/label-service/label/4049d9b7-5563-47e9-b181-6d0f50a6101e/download?printable=true&pageFormat=RAW&useImageFormat=false&attachment=true&consumer=LABELUI_SINGLE

I would advise not doing this as I made this mistake back some time and it took over all my PDF using Firefox. One shouldn't use anything other then a Acrobat Reader or Pro 11.x to open pdf only.
There seems to be a misunderstanding. The behaviour that I'm starting with is that Firefox already opens PDFs and I'm fine with it. It's not the system default which is PDF XChange Viewer (or whatever they renamed it). I only want to stop it from opening PDFs from one particular website (eBay).
I had it where it asked to main opening for PDF files and that was a big mistake. After that any pdf not opened in Acrobat was opened by Firefox and some where horrible to navigate in. And I do know from using eBay/Amazon two sites that for me always had issue opening and viewing site contents on both of them and I changed to using only Chrome for eBay/Amazon now.
If you're on Windows 10, go to the start menu search bar and enter "choose a default app for each type of file" and it gives you the relevant settings to change that.
