Can't download open PDF after downloading

Had to factory reset Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro and reinstall Firefox Nightly. Now I can download pdf's from the internet but cannot open then. Not sure if Firefox, the 4 different pdf viewer apps I'm trying to use, Google, Adobe, Mi or Drive pdf viewers. It either comes up with error message in Chinese if I use Mi Pdf app or says "file could not be accessed,check your connection or make file name shorter" if I use 3 others. Any advice would be appreciated. It worked before the factory reset so not sure where the issue is. Thanks

In some cases it is a problem with the file name: it may need the .pdf extension added if Firefox did not add it while saving. I don't know whether you can modify the file name from inside Firefox. Maybe you need a file manager app for that?

Hello, Have you tried after disabling the Adobe Acrobat plugin here:

Tools > Add-ons > Plugins category

I hope it will help you out.
