pdf files are downloading and not opening
Firefox on Android was; when viewing a web page with a link for a PDF would simply prompt you to open with, I select Acrobat and it opens.
Now, the PDF ALWAYS downloads - not acceptable.
This was working as expected just 2 weeks or so ago; what's changed?
PS - I did try the PDF add-on which sort of works, but performance is so bad it is unusable.

I was using FF with a local web site canned on the SD card of my tablet, and it has a lot of PDF collateral for quick viewing when there is no Wi-Fi.
Firefox was the only Android Browser that worked with a local web site fully contained on the SD card or Local storage. Bummer.
