When I click on links to PDF files, I have to download them to disk, and then open them. They won't open automatically in Acrobat Viewer; the dialogs have no "Open" option, like they do with Word files. The PDF files DO automatically open in Acrobat when using Internet Explorer.

Every time Firefox opened

== I think it's been a problem since I started using FireFox

You have the Adobe Reader plug-in installed per the list of plug-ins at the bottom of your question (Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape "9.3.2").

So, check your settings for PDF files on Tools > Options > Applications. See: https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Options+window+-+Applications+panel http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Managing+file+types http://kb.mozillazine.org/File_types_and_download_actions
