Hello, I want to open a PDF directly from Firefox - the university makes several uploads via the official website and in order not to waste time, I would like to click on it to open the PDF, it would already be opened.

I've tried to open PDFs from a couple of different places/sites, but I can't from Firefox. I logged into Chrome, and I could download them quite easily. This just started today, June 2, 2019. I haven't changed any settings, and everything is up to date. My settings are to open in Adobe Acrobat. Thanks!

I change the default helper application for "Portable Document Format (PDF)" files in Firefox to open using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. At some later point in time, it gets changed back to "Save File". This is very annoying. Any idea what the problem is and how to stop it from happening?

So I'm trying to change my default PDF viewer to Mozilla, but it won't change from Edge to Mozilla. I have set these settings "Preview in Mozilla". Also, if I try to change my default PDF viewer in Windows, it won't even let me change to Mozilla, it just pop backs to Microsoft Edge. However, if I try to set my default PDF viewer to Adobe or anything other than that, that totally works fine.

Firefox does not show up as an option for pdf files under Control Panel's "Choose default apps by file type".

The problem is on my wife's laptop, (a Dell Inspiron 5759). (Her Windows 10 is up-to-date.) She got a red screen phishing page on Firefox last week. (It claimed to be from Microsoft, and told her to call a certain number -- we did not call.) It essentially locked up her computer -- the mouse wouldn't move, even the power button didn't respond most of the time. I eventually had to unplug her power supply, and remove the battery. When it came back up from that, it responded; so, I uninstalled Firefox and deleted her cache folders.

I've reinstalled Firefox; but, now I can't associate pdf files with Firefox on her machine. Only Microsoft Edge is shown as available in "Choose default apps by file type".

Cannot set Firefox as PDF default viewer

Prior FF option to select "preview PDF in FF" is no longer offered (or visible). But my selecting "just" "Firefox" from the drop-down list of available PDF default viewers does not "stick"--the PDF viewer always remains "Edge"--even though FF is set as the general default browser. The same problem was occurring when Acrobat Reader DC was on the computer and it was the default for PDF's--so I entirely removed that app, but now I get (MS's built-in) Edge as the PDF default but not FF. Changing file associations, etc. just does not have any effect! I am using the current versions of FF and Windows 10 Pro.
