I am using Firefox ESR 31.4 and Adobe Reader 10.1.10 My retirement is to open PDF document from my application in firefox only. I have set in Application Tab -> PDF (content Type) -- action as use Adobe Acrobat (in firefox). 1. When I open the PDF document from application, I am prompted "What should Firefox do with this File? options -> Save, Open With" 2. I select Open with and the value available is 'Adobe Reader (default). 3. I check the box "Do this automatically for files like this from now on". The PDF file opens in browser. 4. Next time i open the PDF document it again prompts me with options 'Save' or 'Open With'

Is there a way so that firefox remembers the preference for opening PDF files.

Downloaded PDF's don't always contain .PDF file extension and aren't able to be opened without manually adding extension. This isn't always the case, but is consistent with various different websites - e.g., downloading a w9 form from IRS website works fine, but downloading my bank statements or insurance bill leaves me with a generic (no extension file) in my downloads directory.
