When I click on a link it will not open but but it goes to the downloads file on the taskbar. I need it to open like it used to.

When I used to click on a link a box opened up - "you have chosen to open:" and asked what Firefox should do with the file giving me a choice of "open with" or "save file". I would click "OK" on "open with" Microsoft Word and it would open. Now it does not do that. It just goes directly to the download icon and when i click on that it says its downloading the link. I've been able to go from there and get to the file and open it but most of the time it wont. Regardless, I would like it to open immediately like it did originally. I think i must have accidentally changed something somewhere but I have no clue. I'm very computer illiterate. I appreciate any help I get on this!

Hello I recently downloaded the latest version of Firefox 54 for Linux. Everything worked great however even after making it the default browser links from external programs such as Pidgin won't open in a new tab in firefox. Instead a new window will pop-up with my home page. I've tried solving it by uninstalling the other version of firefox I downloaded from the repository (Firefox 45)

I fear it might be because I didn't really install it, instead I just ran the file directly form the download labed just firefox. It seems to be working fine and there was no README file so I assumed that was the way it should've been done.

How can I override server mime types, to always get mp3/rar/sid/bin files directly to the 'where do you want to save this file' dialog?

I used to be able to click MP3 files, way back when, and Firefox would ask where I wanted to save them. Nowadays it opens a new tab with a flash player. Clicking on 'unknown' files, like .sid, .prg, .zip, .rar pops up 'This is a BIN file. [Cancel] [Save]'. It does not give me a checkbox for 'always do this'. I would like the option to edit so that some file types, such as PDF, regardless of mimetype, always get opened in a new tab if clicked. Also some file types, based on extension, always go directly to 'Where do you want to save the file?' dialog box, regardless if there's a builtin player or viewer or not. In my Firefox (41.0.1 Ubuntu 14.04LTS 32-bit) I never get the 'do this for these files always' choice anymore. Googling led me to delete my mimeTypes.rdf file, and since then even 'well known' file extensions, like .zip, are treated as BIN files and I get the Cancel-or-Save box for those, too - again without the choice to 'always save BIN files'.

I am using Firefox ESR 31.4 and Adobe Reader 10.1.10 My retirement is to open PDF document from my application in firefox only. I have set in Application Tab -> PDF (content Type) -- action as use Adobe Acrobat (in firefox). 1. When I open the PDF document from application, I am prompted "What should Firefox do with this File? options -> Save, Open With" 2. I select Open with and the value available is 'Adobe Reader (default). 3. I check the box "Do this automatically for files like this from now on". The PDF file opens in browser. 4. Next time i open the PDF document it again prompts me with options 'Save' or 'Open With'

Is there a way so that firefox remembers the preference for opening PDF files.

Downloaded PDF's don't always contain .PDF file extension and aren't able to be opened without manually adding extension. This isn't always the case, but is consistent with various different websites - e.g., downloading a w9 form from IRS website works fine, but downloading my bank statements or insurance bill leaves me with a generic (no extension file) in my downloads directory.
