Unable to get Firefox to successfully download and open some PDFs. No problem with other browsers. Why?

Veröffentlicht

When browsing and insurance website, I try to download a PDF file, but Firefox is unable to download it. Instead I get a download of an HTML file with garbage contents. Other browsers (Chrome, Edge) have no problem with the download. Why?

No Error messages. Currently having problem with one site only, but that site works fine with other browsers. Suspect a problem with the linkage between Firefox and its PDF reader, although many other PDFs download just fine when coming from other sites.
