Up until today, PDF files would open automatically in Adobe where I could look at the file and print it. Today, Firefox will only allow the file to be downloaded. This causes me grief, an extra step. One of the main reasons I use Firefox is for this feature. Is there a way to change settings so that PDF files will always open in Adobe?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Click on tools, then settings. Scroll down to Applications and locate the PDF icon. Using the drop down menu, select "Use Adobe Acrobat" instead of always ask or save file. I've noticed that after an update, Firefox may reset to save file. Little frustrating but fixable.
