cannot run a PDF without saving it first.
Fiefox is making me save a PDF file before it will let me view it. I know there's a fix for that but I cannot remember what or where it is.
What is the current action for PDF files ?Read this answer in context 1

Firefox will always save a PDF file to the temp folder if you open the file in am external PDF viewer. Even if you open the file in the builtin PDF viewer (Preview in Firefox) then the file needs to be downloaded in the disk cache or the memory cache.
My problem is FireFox is making me save it in my Document Folder before it will let me view it.

Think I found my problem. I went in FireFox options and saw that the "save file" was checked behind PDF files.
Pretty sure that was the problem and will know for sure next time I try to view a PDF. Thank for your help!
Solved my problem. I couldn't work out why things I could access in Chrome could not be accessed in Firefox. Now I know and it was, as usual, my fault! :-)
