I have some web pages that embed a PDF document. This worked fine in all major browsers until a couple weeks ago (late December 2018 / early January 2019). It still works fine in IE, Chrome and Edge but not Firefox. It's like Firefox is completely ignoring the <object> tag. I verified I have the latest version of Firefox. I'm on a Windows 10 machine.

I created a small/simple web page to display the issue (it's only 15 lines of html code):

http://missilecommand.org/control_panels/test.html

I tried installing the Firefox add-on for PDF, but that did not help.

Can anyone please help me get this working in Firefox? Thanks,

In the latest Firefox version (July 18) links to other pages in the same site won't work, but other links do. Why not (they work in other browsers)?

Within that same web site the links to its associated PDFs and to other websites work in all browsers, still including Firefox in its latest version, so why the links to other pages within the same site no longer work in the latest version of Firefox when they always did in every other version is a mystery to me. Being non-technical, the obvious work-around of going back to a previous version is something equally mysterious and therefore inaccessible to me. I have never had to think of doing it before, having been a Firefox (default browser) user for eight years, opting always to have auto upgrades to the latest version because of a trouble-free experience of Firefox - until now.

Filling in an online ballot yesterday on a different website, while using Firefox, threw up a very similar problem. When I clicked on 'read candidates' statements', which had a PDF icon next to it, I wasn't taken to a PDF: nothing happened. So I suspect it was a link to a different page of that website, which comprised just a PDF. All very frustrating. I have reported this to the electoral body which provides the secure online ballot for the organisation staging the election, outlining what I describe above, and asking them too to report this to Mozilla.

My work-around, until Firefox fix this issue, which I have reported to them, is simply to use Internet Explorer or Chrome when necessary, resisting the temptation to make one of them my default browser and thus make even more megabucks for their rapacious owners.

Any help would be appreciated, but please don't assume when you kindly respond that I have technical knowledge! Plain English instructions, please. Thank you.

Up until a couple weeks ago right clicking on a pdf and selecting to take a screenshot was doing just that - allowing me to take a screenshot of the pdf in the page. Since then whenever I try to do the same, I get an error saying that this is not a standard web page. Any advice?

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.

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?
