I have written several local shell scripts to handle how to open a PDF. When Firefox asks me how to open a PDF, I would like to see all of them in the dropdown menu. However, I can only see the one that I had previously selected, so whenever I want to use another one, I have to click "Other..." and go through my filesystem to their respective paths. Is there a way to permanently make several applications appear in that dropdown menu?

We use the Adobe plug-in to open and print multiple PDF files from Firefox everyday. Staring last week every time we try and print a PDF file from Firefox it causes Firefox to freeze up, and the only option is to end the program. This is happening on multiple different computers. Two of the computers use Adobe Reader and have the most current version, one of the computers is using Adobe Acrobat version 10.1.15. We have tried all of the basic fixes (i.e. Restarting the computer/browser, starting the browser in safe mode, using the Refresh Firefox option, clearing the cookies and cache, disabling the plug-ins, etc...) nothing seems to be helping. Any insight into how to resolve this problem would be much appreciated.

I scanned a document using an HP Officejet 4630 Series, connected via USB to my Acer Aspire 5920. I intent to send that document as an attachment but when I do this, the file open as a firefox file and open in a tab and this address; file:///C:/Users/ADMINYO/Documents/Scan0001.pdf. The file properties, in the Type of fileline identify it as Firefox HTML Document (.pdf). But again, the printer is USB connected. In a second try, I turned off both the printer and the Laptop Wifi features having the same results. Any sugestion? Thanks.

I was looking at images in an email, (PDF) and firefox was running 339,600K and froze my system. Is this typical? It just kept happening I waited, however the screen turned gray (with the email showing beneath) and after about 15 min I decided that was long enough and refreshed the browser (or the little circle arrow). Then I was able to begin again, but it kept happening about every third image. Thanks in advance for your advise

Hi,

I have one problem.

In firefox v.41, when I previewed a pdf, if the pdf had a links inside, there was no problem, but from I updated Firefox to v.42, the links don't work. In fact, when I click in the link, it doesn't do anything.

The problem is, I manage a web with some norms in Spain and this is a important problem for our users.

The document is http://www.codigotecnico.org/images/stories/pdf/seguridadIncendio/DccSI.pdf (Page.32)

Thanks in advance.

A number of months ago, using a previous FF version, I noticed that I could no longer open or download Adobe PDF files. No error, no blank screen, nothing - the only evidence of reaction to my mouse click is that the Adobe symbol on the page would disappear and turn into a circular progress bar (the usual reaction) but instead of anything coming up, the Adobe symbol would return. Nothing opened, nothing downloaded. I would check "Show all Downloads" and there would be none for the session. I spent an hour or two searching for advice (variations of this problem appear to be common) but nothing suggested there helped. Eventually I just gave up and reset FF back to its default settings. Everything worked fine after the reset, although I don't know how often I used it after that (but I'm pretty sure at least 5 or 10 times, successfully). Since then I know that I've had at least one, maybe more, FF install updates (automated, not by me). As of today I'm back where I started from - the same reaction when I click the link (momentary circular progress bar) but no view, no download, no blank page, no error message. I've repeated my 1+ hour help search online today (like before) to no avail. I assume I could reset to factory defaults but that is going to be a recurring waste of time, given how often FF updates, if that is the only solution. Surely there is SOMETHING I can change inside FF (or elsewhere) without always having to do a full reset (and lose any changes I've made). Here is my info regarding system and software and settings: Dell Laptop Windows 10 Firefox 43.0.3 Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Version 2015.009.20079 Up-to-Date Kaspersky license

As for my FF options and add-ons, I've tried every variation under the sun. In Options/Preferences/Applications I've set PDF Files to every available choice, including Save File, Preview in Firefox, Always Ask, Use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (default) and Use Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox). Nothing worked. Under Add-Ons/Plug-Ins I have Adobe Acrobat 15.9.20069.28170 installed and I've set that to either "Always Activate" or "Ask to Activate," to no avail. Be aware that every time I've changed one of these settings and tried to download a PDF, the reaction was ALWAYS BEEN exactly as described in the opening description in this email - no variation in response to changes to any of the Add-On settings or the any of the settings for the Application Preferences for PDF files.

Any suggestion would be appreciated. For now I'll just have to go to IE.

One of my billing sites displays a view of my bill using what I suppose is a pdf. I get this error at the top saying npapi is blocked by firefox - do I want to continue or use npapi. That never works. So, I changed my prefs to use Adobe Reader instead. It still tries to use npapi at this site despite my prefs. Is the site antiquated or is Firefox kludgy?

For some reason, Firefox is now not displaying parts of the page correctly. I've noticed this mostly in my Wordpress Jetpack stats, but as I've gone around the web, it's been doing the same with PDFs as well. Videos and regular images are fine.

Here are some sample images. These are supposed to be JetPack stats, you should see line graphs, but it just looks like you changed the TV channel to a non-operating signal.

http://queenoftherandomjob.com/Jetpack-Nerds.jpg http://queenoftherandomjob.com/Jetpack-TOM.jpg http://queenoftherandomjob.com/Jetpack-QRJ.jpg

Here's what I see on a PDF: http://queenoftherandomjob.com/Bernie.jpg And the actual link to the PDF: https://berniesanders.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Wall-St-Letter-1.pdf

I spoke with Jetpack and they said it definitely was a browser issue...I have checked in Safari and Opera and everything is rendering fine there. PDFs, Wordpress...no issue.

This issue started just last week, and I haven't installed or changed anything. Everything was fine in the morning, and then in the evening, it went all wiggy. I do not have Avast anti-virus (this seems to be the culprit in other people's issues,) and I'm on a Macbook. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, cleared the cache, etc. I'm still having issues.

If anyone has any advice, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!

I used to be able to download files and attachments. One came through as a PDF and I was asked how I wanted to open it. This never happened before. I had no idea what to choose. I have no idea how they were being opened before. I just simply chose Firefox and now all that happens is I get a new tab. I use the download arrow a lot. Can you please help be get back in working order?

I'm trying to open a .pdf in Firefox but each time I try to a new tab comes up and I get a pop-up asking me if I want to open the file or save it. If I choose to open it with Firefox it does the same thing again and again and again, never opening the file.

What in the Hell is going on here? I know Firefox is capable of open .pdfs, I've done so before. I just don't know why I'm no longer able to.

Hello.

I am looking for a pdf document viewer. I found the google docs viewer https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/google-docs-viewer-pdf-doc-/?src=search and the PDF Search Engine and PDF Viewer Toolbar https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=pdf+view&appver=50.0&platform=windows

EDIT: These are also helpful: Always Preview: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/always-preview/ Open in Browser: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-in-browser/

For some reason Firefox was not displaying pdf's. I use Internet Download manager and it was trying to download the file without me being able to see it in Firefox. Even with the auto-download windows, Firefox should have shown the pdf.

I don't want to use Google Docs viewer since I am using Firefox. PDF Search Engine and PDF Viewer Toolbar is a little bit slower and ad's another row underneath the bookmarks bar (less web-page to see). Are there other options? I did a search on the Extentions page but most of the entries are to save or convert web-pages into pdf's. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=pdf+view&appver=50.0&platform=windows

Here is a sample pdf http://healthfirst.epubs.flippagepublishing.com/publication/?m=37032&l=1

Thank you.
