FF has hijacked my PDF files, i.e. opens them online by default. I have selected "open in Acrobat 9.5" in the Settings menu / Applications, but it still opens the files in the web viewer. How do I stop that short of uninstalling Mozilla? I am using Windows 7 Enterprise and this problem just started with the last FF update.

You need to do this in the Firefox settings and the computer's default program settings also.
