Problem with saving or opening file dialogue, any fixes for this?

Kuphostiwe

When I get your typical "save" or "open" file dialogue, Firefox ALWAYS downloads no matter choice. Have already runned Firefox in Safe Mode to rule out any Add-On issues. This is starting to get very annoying, used to love opening PDF's in the built-in PDF-Viewer.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Is the PDF file actually saving in your downloads folder or is it saving in your system's temporary folder?

Whenever you open a file instead of saving it, the file will still be downloaded and saved on your system in order for the program to access to it. The file will also appear in your download history. This is the normal Firefox behavior.

  2. In the Options (Preferences for Linux and Mac) tab (window for previous than 38.0 firefox version), select the Applications panel.
  3. In the Search field, type PDF. You should find Portable Document Format (PDF).

Umnikazi wombuzo

Hi Wesley, thanks for the reply. But that doesn't address the issue. Firstly it has been set to "always ask" which I prefer, because I want to save some PDF's. But most of the time I wanna do a quick scan through and open one in Firefox.

Up until this update it just did what I told it to, and this isn't just with PDF's, any file type I choose to open with another program it still just saves it regardless of the save or open choice I make. So what's the point then? Been using Firefox for years, a few weeks ago it was simple. Choose open: a tab appears, choose save: file gets saved. Did Firefox take away this option or what?
