PDF files leave blank screen and firefox hangs on trying to open applications (listed in Tools-->Options--> as Adobe Acrobat). Will open if I say "always use", in this case "PDF XChange Viewer", but will hang if I leave as "Always Ask". Why do I have to choose an application? Why can't I allow to ask, as it used to, before recent update?
