Hi guys. I'm on a Lenovo laptop, using Windows 11. Was NOT experiencing this issue (or any other issues) till today. That is, I've been able to download PDFs attached to Yahoo email for years, including recently (till today).
Trying to get Firefox to be DEFAULT instead of MS Edge, I changed some 'Apps associated with File Types', selecting Firefox as default for all file types that seemed appropriate, BUT, this issue then began.
Feeling I went too far, and should go step at a time, I reset All File Type settings back to default (MS recommended settings). Still can't open attached PDFs. I tried an Excel attachment and it opened fine.
Error I get is:
"Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, dl-mail.ymail.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window."
The emails I used to recreate the error, were sending an email to myself, and attaching a PDF.
Other things I tried:
I used Firefox with gmail email and the PDF attachment downloaded fine.
I used MS Edge with Yahoo email and PDF attachment downloaded fine.
Also, btw, CAN view a PDF attachment with Yahoo email. Just now download.
I CAN "open it in a new window" as the error suggests, than print to PDF, but don't want to live the rest of my life doing that.
Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered!!
