Firefox 24 opened .doc file in shared Dropbox folder but firefox 25 won't

Under FF24 I could open and VIEW .doc and .docx files in a shared Dropbox folder. With FF25, I can't and instead I get a weird error message.

There is an Adobe icon and the following text:

Adobe Reader cannot show documents in this browser.

We are sorry, but Adobe Reader is unable to show documents in this browser configuration.

Please use your browser to download this file and open it in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.

To avoid this message in the future, many browsers provide a way to turn off certain add-ons, and some are able to show this document natively. Please contact your browser vendor for more details.

So why is FF25 trying to use a PDF reader to open a .doc/.docx file?
