How do I OPEN and read pdf docs on line rather than download, save and then read and delete. This only happens on some sites & started recently.

When I go to a site and try to open something (like a monthly statement, etc.) instead of opening it in pdf so I can read it Firefox makes me download it, save it, and then open it. Then I have to go through the whole find it and delete it routine if I don't want to keep it. Don't know why this started to happen recently, and it does not do it on all sites.

Please try the following:

  1. Open the Firefox Options window
  2. Select the Applications tab
  3. Locate Portable Document Format (PDF) on the list of file types
  4. Change the Action to Preview In Firefox
  5. Click Ok

This should allow you to preview most files in Firefox.
This will not work in all cases because some website contain codes to force the browser to download instead of preview.
