Use a file browser. Look for one of the files and right click on it. Select Properties. Then General. Under Open With, press the Change button.

Thank you, but you are way off. I'm not trying to change what program opens a file in windows. I'm trying to deploy a setting in the about:config "pdfjs.disabled = 'true'" settings via Group Policy to over 200 computers.

I'm having this problem too, except I'm trying to push it out to 400 PC's with 2-10 users per PC. i need a way to be able to configure it so when a user logs into the PC via our domain login Firefox will be automatically configured to open PDF's from Firefox in an Adobe Reader window, otherwise we have to manually configure it like FredMcD said, and that gets very frustrating after the 2nd PC
