Foxit Reader is my favourite PDF program. To be able to save and print from the preview window in Firefox (on the left hand upper side) I use the ESR channel. Till version 59.9 at the bottom of the preview window a toolbar appeared with which I could save or print the document. Since the upgrade to version 60.2, this toolbar does not appear (which was the fact when I used the standard version of Firefox). I want to downgrade to ESR 59.9 (though Mozilla does not recommend this) in order to have back the toolbar, but if I choose for this version (in the download history under 'options') the latest version remains. Secondly: Is there a way to retrieve the mentioned toolbar in ESR version 60.2?

I used to have two profiles. I deleted one. But I still got profile manager first when starting FF. So I clicked the box to load the default without asking. I'm almost sure that it was immediately after that, when clicking on links elsewhere (e.g. shortcuts I've created, links in pdfs) I get the "FF is already running message." So I manually opened profile manager and unclicked the "use selected profile without asking" button (and I've gone back and confirmed its unchecked) and I'm still getting the message.

My website has a number of pdf pages, each of which has a linked button for "More detail". This works fine in IE and fine in Pale Moon and fine in CHrome and fine even in FF if FF is set to use the Adobe pdf viewer.

But if FF is using the built in viewer, the links don't work, either completely non-responsive, or go to the wrong address.

This issue has been bugging people for a few years, is it possible to get it fixed please? I am tired of dealing with frustrated users who can't open the linked files.

Example look here: http://canberrabirds.org.au/wp-content/BirdSummaryData/Australasian%20Bittern.pdf andclick on More Detail blue button at top.

I'm on a CentOS v6.10 machine with the latest available firefox, (firefox-60.1.0-6.el6.centos.x86_64). When I click on a PDF, it downloads it properly, but when I click on the downloads progress icon and click on the file, it reports "Unable to open document. File type text/plain type (text/plain) is not supported". The default app for PDFs is evince as it has been for years. That worked fine until the recent major update of firefox. If I set it for the standard firefox PDF viewer, the result is still the same.

I have just re-installed everything after a hard drive failure. Restored data files from backup. Firefox then "hijacked" all pdf's. I went to folder options and told Windows to associate pdf's with Adobe reader. I still get the Firefox icon for these files, can't get Adobe icon or thumbnails which would normally be available from Adobe reader. I really like Firefox, but this is pi$$ing me off.

Basically, if a PDF file has italics, they print out bold. If I print to a file and reopen it in firefox, it also appears bold and not italic on the screen.

I read a similar post where a user had the same issue, but their solution seemed to be "open in Adobe Reader," which seems like a lame solution.. Their complaint was that the extra step is annoying, and I agree. When I download a PDF file or open one from Firefox, I should be able to do so within the browser. I can do it chrome, but I prefer not to use chrome.

I tried to attach screen shots of the page as it is supposed to be and how it actually prints, but the "Uploaded images:" box just keeps spinning. If anyone can help and would like to see what my issue actually looks like, I can sent you a picture somehow, I'm sure.

Just for the past few days 12-19-18 or so I've noticed this happening. I'll get an email, click "print" and it will open the email in a pop-up window. I select "Adobe PDF" as the printer, and then a window usually comes up showing the progress, and then it opens the pdf in Adobe Acrobat.

Recently, however, when that window comes up and shows the progress bar, it freezes. Sometimes I get error messages (shown in screenshots) but mostly I have to go to Task Manager, shut down firefox.exe processes, and I can't print the file to a PDF at all anymore. When I use this feature in Chrome, it works fine. I mean, it used to in Firefox, too, I don't know what changed.

The scrollbar is not visible in the PDF viewer. It is when I click on the right side of the window, but it's always a blind attempt since I cannot see where it is and therefore I loose the page I was reading. I have just updated to 62.0 but the issue is still there. I use Ubuntu 18.04.1.

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.

Hi all, I have a little bit annoying problem which occurred in a couple of days. What is the problem: we have an internal web site where people upload some pdf files and other users work on them. One user has the following problem: when he opens a pdf from the web site using Mozilla it opens his Acrobat XI Standard. He modified the file the try to send it. Unfortunately it hanged. I've tried to change the option for pdf document to be opened with Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox) but it didn't work. When I made a test on another workstation with 35.0.1 version and Acrobat XI Pro the default option is Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox) but when you open the file there is no "send to mail" option only print or save. To be sure I've saved the file to the desktop, opened again with Acrobat XI Standard and send to mail option worked like a charm. That's why i decided to ask here for a help. If you have any idea please share with me. Thanks in advance

Firefox won't allow me to attach a .pdf using AOL.com and Yahoo.com but it will let me upload .doc and other file types.

I have been having a problem with Firefox and AOL.com when it comes to attaching .pdf files. It seems to only affect .pdf files when using AOL.com. I get the following error message: "The message was not sent because of an error." It also doesn't allow me to save that particular message as a draft.

I can upload other file types, granted I haven't tried to upload every single type of file type, but I was successfully able to attach the following file types: .doc; .docx; .xls; .jpg; .txt.

If I try attaching a .pdf file with any of the other file types that it usually sends, I get the same error message and am not able to send the e-mail. I can send .pdf files from AOL.com when I use Internet Explorer with no problems. Additionally, I have no problems attaching and sending .pdf files using gmail in Firefox. I also noticed that the same thing happens when I try to send a .pdf attachment using Yahoo.com, but like with AOL.com, I am able to send other file types using Yahoo.com.

I tried starting Firefox in "Safe Mode" with the Add-ons disabled, but the problem was still there. This has been going on for a few months, with the various update versions of Firefox. I have tried this on my home and work wifi networks with the same results. I use the AOL account for work, so I don't use it all that often, which is why I thought that it was a temporary glitch, but I think that it is more than just a temporary glitch.

Also, I tried various PDF files of different sizes and from different locations, with long and short file names, but all had the same result. Interestingly, if I remove the .pdf extension from a PDF file, or change the .pdf extension to a .doc extension, it lets me send the files.

I did try this on another computer that is running Windows XP with the same version of Firefox and I was able to attach and send a PDF file using AOL.com. I don't know if it is a problem isolated to my computer, or if it is something with Windows 7, but I wanted to mention that as well.

I would appreciate any help/guidance in this situation. I can still send the files using Internet Explorer, so it's not the end of the world, but if anyone has any solutions, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you very much.

Take Care, -David

Hello.

I am looking for a pdf document viewer. I found the google docs viewer https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/google-docs-viewer-pdf-doc-/?src=search and the PDF Search Engine and PDF Viewer Toolbar https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=pdf+view&appver=50.0&platform=windows

EDIT: These are also helpful: Always Preview: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/always-preview/ Open in Browser: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-in-browser/

For some reason Firefox was not displaying pdf's. I use Internet Download manager and it was trying to download the file without me being able to see it in Firefox. Even with the auto-download windows, Firefox should have shown the pdf.

I don't want to use Google Docs viewer since I am using Firefox. PDF Search Engine and PDF Viewer Toolbar is a little bit slower and ad's another row underneath the bookmarks bar (less web-page to see). Are there other options? I did a search on the Extentions page but most of the entries are to save or convert web-pages into pdf's. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=pdf+view&appver=50.0&platform=windows

Here is a sample pdf http://healthfirst.epubs.flippagepublishing.com/publication/?m=37032&l=1

Thank you.
