Firefox browser is preventing pdf's from downloading completely. When pdf is downloaded the file does not open, nor is it a pdf. I'm not sure how to solve this issue. I wind up opening Chrome to download and open the pdf.

You also can set Firefox to always ask you where to save files, which includes the ability to rename them. Might help. That setting is on the Options page:
