I have firefox 40.0.3 freshly installed on Archlinux with Plasma 5. I like the firefox PDF viewer and would love to continue using it. the problem happens after downloading the pdf (using the download icon in the viewer for example). I click on the "Downloads List" and click on the file, then firefox opens the PDF with Inkscape !
Please note that in the application settings in preferences I have selected "Preview in firefox"
So to my understanding the behavior should be
1) Use the Firefox PDF viewer
2) In case the file is downloaded and opened from firefox, use the default application
but I can't select the default application, nor does firefox choose the right one --- and that is the problem
Firefox's default application for opening PDF is Inkscape.
I added Okular Manually, it didn't help because I couldn't set it to (default)
I tried removing Inkscape but firefox chose to go with Krita as default despite it not being in the options before removing inkscape. I looked everywhere for a way to select what the default application should be, but couldn't find a way to do so.
Is this a bug, or am I missing something.
This is really driving me crazy ! because now I have to "open containing folder and open the file using the file manager (Dolphin in my case).
Thanks in advance for the help.
