Hi

Do you have a .pdf reader app installed on your Android device? Once you have downloaded the file, you should be able to use that app to view it.

Yes I have the original Adobe PDF reader on the cell phone but Firefox doesn't seem to know about it.

Thanks Seburo,

I think I might just reinstall Firefox again.
