I manage a website (melissachappell.com), which has pdf articles in an iframe on the html page. After the latest update (on 07/08/2015) PDF's are now downloading to my downloads folder instead of opening on the page as intended. I don't like this because 1) it clogs up my downloads folder and 2) the page looks weird now because the iframe is blank. Is there any way to change this to have the PDF open on the page instead (as it did before)?

When I open a PDF from our web site, I notice the browser tab displays the name of the Adobe InDesign indd file, but sometimes it displays wrong info that is not related to the filename. It displays info related to a different indd file. I don't see the information in the indd metadata.

This is FF 61.0.2 (64 bit)

Where is the browser tab getting its info from?

Until a few days ago, I was able to open a shipping label on Ebay within Firefox, by pressing the OPEN button and a new tab would open with the label. I was then able to press a PRINT button and the label printed.

Now I purchase the label, the page changes as before and offers me a PRINT LABEL or SAVE LABEL, but when I press the PRINT LABEL button it goes into the save as mode. I tried the SAVE LABEL button and it does the same thing.

There were always the two options. PRINT or SAVE. Now both button just save the label.

Do I need to change some kind of setting? I've asked Ebay if they made any changes and I'm waiting to hear back from them.

Thank you.

When I try to download a .pdf file from my site using http://www.andycraft-beads.co.uk/a5BeadArtBookletGood.pdf I get a file of 5,083,136 bytes which then correctly opens in e.g. Adobe Acrobat Reader. If I use https://www.andycraft-beads.co.uk/a5BeadArtBookletGood.pdf instead, I get a file of 46,153,728 bytes which is corrupt and un-openable. Both IE and Chrome open the file correctly from either source. Is this me?

I was looking at images in an email, (PDF) and firefox was running 339,600K and froze my system. Is this typical? It just kept happening I waited, however the screen turned gray (with the email showing beneath) and after about 15 min I decided that was long enough and refreshed the browser (or the little circle arrow). Then I was able to begin again, but it kept happening about every third image. Thanks in advance for your advise
