New change - Dialog box for files has "Open in Firefox" option

Firefox 78+ releases offers a choice to open PDF files that would normally be saved or opened in an external application in Firefox.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
