Unable to get Firefox to successfully download and open some PDFs. No problem with other browsers. Why?
When browsing and insurance website, I try to download a PDF file, but Firefox is unable to download it. Instead I get a download of an HTML file with garbage contents. Other browsers (Chrome, Edge) have no problem with the download. Why?

Is the problem with many sites, some, a few? Do you get any kind of error messages?

No Error messages. Currently having problem with one site only, but that site works fine with other browsers. Suspect a problem with the linkage between Firefox and its PDF reader, although many other PDFs download just fine when coming from other sites.
