free file viewer download changed most of my word docs to pdf. How to get back to word?


I downloaded Free File Viewer to be able to open docx and xlsx materials. Now most of my word and xls docs have been changed into pdfs! I need them to be switched back to regular word and xls. Thanks for any suggestions one may have to fix this.

hello heminm, this is a support forum for the mozilla firefox web-browser, so we are probably not qualified to help you with this 3rd-party-software or even find a solution to the issue.

it's better to directly contact the support/developers of the application which changed the filetype of these documents....

Thank anyway.
