viewing pdfs opens infinite tabs

Posted

Firefox 66.0.5 Windows 10 (1803)

If I open a PDF in Firefox, it just keeps opening up tab after tab opening the same PDF. I tried running in safe mode and see the same problem.

You should never select Firefox as the application to handle a file via the "open with" dialog. In this case you should instead select "Preview in Firefox" for Portable Document Format (PDF) in "Options/Preferences -> Applications".

You get tabs opening endlessly if you select Firefox as the application to handle a file when you get an "Open with" dialog.
