Hi Remon, Internet Explorer and the Adobe ActiveX plugin for IE have a more intimate connection with Windows than Firefox does. Unfortunately, Firefox only has a feature to send a link, not the actual document as an attachment. I don't know whether an add-on could do it; that may depend on whether you are using a webmail site to compose the message or an external program.

I know. I think you do not understand me.

When I open a PDF file in IE and it is opend in IE (not adobe), I can send this PDF file as an attachment, via File, send, page via email. Outlook will then be opened. And then I can send the mail. The PDF file is then added as an attachment.

Is the above also possible in Firefox ESR.

Then your Windows 8.1 has a options that needs to be set where you get the option "mailto" so it works with browser opening a email to send by email.
