In Firefox Settings (General) there is a section 'applications' that allows you to [[choose an action based on file types|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file#w_changing-download-actions]]; such as PDF (open in FF, save, etc)

This menu is not functional for me. When I click on the down arrow to change the option, it should open a list - but nothing happens.

I tried rebooting & restarting FF, but the issue remains.

I am using FF 98 on Linux Manjaro.
