I have always had PDFs set to "Always ask" is described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file This hasn't changed. The dialog which asks what to do with the file used to have "Save File" selected by default. This was convenient, because this is usually what I want. However, the default selection has recently changed to "Open with Firefox", which I hardly ever want. This requires me to perform an extra step when accessing PDFs from the Web, which I do quite often. I am not aware of having done anything which would affect this, nor have I found a corresponding option to change it back. How can I restore the previous behaviour?

If you go to the about:config page in Firefox, you can change the browser.helperApps.showOpenOptionForPdfJS preference to false and restart Firefox to remove the Open with Firefox option from the save dialog.

Hope this helps.

Is there any way to change the default "open with firefox" option, to "save", rather than removing it outright?

I.e. leave both options, just default to save.
