Problems opening PDFs in Firefox.

I have a problem opening PDFs. Here's the deal. For my website, I have XEA based Adobe forms. Per I set PDFs to Use Adobe Acrobat in Firefox.....and that works great.

BUT when I have Use Adobe Acrobat in Firefox, I then cannot open other PDF links on any other site. Instead I get the dreaded SAVE AS diaglogue box so I have to download the PDF file and then open it.

If I try to switch PDFs to Use Adobe Acrobat (rather than Use Adobe Acrobat in Firefox) then I cannot open my XEA based Adobe forms. So I have to keep PDFs to Use Adobe Acrobat in Firefox for my XEA web-based forms, but that prevents me from opening any other PDFs online (since I have to save the other PDFs rather than opening them).

How do I solve this problem so I can open other PDFs online (without saving) and yet still be able to use my XEA based Adobe Forms by Use Adobe Acrobat in Firefox?

Thanks, Steve
