Can't get Firefox to NOT open PDF files in the browser

I would like Firefox to always ask whether I want to open or save a PDF document. Instead, it always displays the file in the browser and pops up a toolbar. In Tools/Options/Applications pdf files are not listed. However "PDF Xchange Viewer Document" (my default PDF viewer) is listed and the action is set to "Always ask"; yet it never asks. Why?

Goto Plugin, disable Adobe reader plugin and try it.

Thanks. I don't have an Adobe reader plugin but I found the PDF-XchangeViewer plugin and disabled it, and that worked.

Such actions are usually linked to a specific MIME type and if Firefox doesn't obey and ask what to do then you may have created this action for the wrong MIME type.
