Latest Firefox Update

Posted

I manage a website (melissachappell.com), which has pdf articles in an iframe on the html page. After the latest update (on 07/08/2015) PDF's are now downloading to my downloads folder instead of opening on the page as intended. I don't like this because 1) it clogs up my downloads folder and 2) the page looks weird now because the iframe is blank. Is there any way to change this to have the PDF open on the page instead (as it did before)?

First check to make sure that the Applications settings in Firefox reflect what you want it to do with a pdf file: Applications panel - Set how Firefox handles different types of files

Second if its a site issue I would also ask in stackoverflow.com.
