Question

When downloading a file that opens in another program, say a pdf-file, is it possible to open this program in the background so that I can continue browsing?

When downloading and viewing files, e.g. pdf- or Excel files, focus is automatically switched from Firefox to the pdf viewer or Excel when the files have finished downloading. It would be nice to be able to download and open multiple files without switching back and forth between Firefox and the other program for every time a new file is downloaded. Is it possible for Firefox to somehow "override" this behavior, so that I can continue browsing while the program opens in the background?

Thanks Jacob Hauge
