Using PDF Reader plugin for for PDF file to open in firefox will always prompt for Pop-up window providing 'Save' or 'Open With' options?

Posted

I am using Firefox ESR 31.4 and Adobe Reader 10.1.10 My retirement is to open PDF document from my application in firefox only. I have set in Application Tab -> PDF (content Type) -- action as use Adobe Acrobat (in firefox). 1. When I open the PDF document from application, I am prompted "What should Firefox do with this File? options -> Save, Open With" 2. I select Open with and the value available is 'Adobe Reader (default). 3. I check the box "Do this automatically for files like this from now on". The PDF file opens in browser. 4. Next time i open the PDF document it again prompts me with options 'Save' or 'Open With'

Is there a way so that firefox remembers the preference for opening PDF files.

For a reset of that particular preference, you may need to delete all other preferences made/changed in the Application options. "If you delete the mimeTypes.rdf file from the profile folder while Firefox is closed, it will be replaced with the factory default when Firefox is next started "
