I want to open online PDFs in Acrobat. I've modified the setting is in Firefox to "Always ask," yet when I click on a PDF it opens as it should AND Firefox automatically downloads the file to the Downloads folder even though that destination is greyed out in settings and the radial button for "Always Ask" is selected. How can I block this activity in either Firefox or in the registry.

NOTE: ALL OF THE SETTINGS IN FIREFOX SAY "ALWAYS ASK." This a software bug in Firefox, not a user switch setting. This activity began today (March 11, 2022) after months of normal, expected activity. I've reset Firefox and I've done a complete uninstall and clean install and this still happens.

Until about a month ago, every time I clicked on a download link to save a file, Firefox asked whether I want to save the file to my downloads folder, or to just open it, which would save it to a folder in my temp folder that would be deleted when I close Firefox.

Now, out of nowhere, it doesn't ask the question anymore, it automatically assumes I want to save it to a folder (instead of "opening" it).

Before anyone tells me to go to Settings -> General -> Applications, and set the file types to "Always ask", I have tried, and there are two problems with it:

  • There are only a few file types in that list. While I can set Firefox to ask when downloading those types of files, anything else (like text files or MP3 files) is saved to the downloads folder without asking. I want it to ask what to do with any file, not just the specific file types in that list.
  • Even for the file types that are available in the list, if I choose to open a file instead of downloading, it is still saved to my downloads folder instead of the temp folder, and is not deleted after I close Firefox.

Also, I'm using Manjaro Linux with KDE, and I also have the Plasma Integration extension installed on Firefox.

I just updated last night to version 98.0 of Firefox, and have noticed that when I click on manage bookmarks that the boomarks now open at the bottom of the various bookmarks folders by default instead of opening at the top like they used to. What happened here? I am including a picture to show where the manage bookmarks section is going by default now instead of where it normally does. Can anyone help fix this?

I made a post the other week about issues I was having with Firefox & YouTube.

Having put the browser in safe mode I discovered that it was my ad blocker/s. That said, I had notice Firefox lagging or loading hard on video sites, not just YouTube as well as some applets on other sites. And having experimented with various ad blockers and video sites as well as my own blogs, I find that I am not having these problems with ad blockers in Chrome or Edge, but only Firefox, so much so, that most of these sites are entirely unusable unless I disable the ad blocker/s in Firefox.

Frankly, I've been noticing it for some time, but as of the other week they have nearly rendered the browser unusable, or the ad blocker/s unusable in Firefox on said sites. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled the add-ons, from the Mozilla site, to no real avail.

It is not only annoying but very frustrating and I am about to give up, on the browser altogether. I am not having these problems with the same ad blocker/s in Chrome.

I've spent nearly two weeks on this and it hasn't gotten better.

There it is. Thank you.

I know Firefox recently changed some settings regarding automatic downloading of files, but I need to know how to stop Firefox from automatically downloading .pdf files that I view. Sometimes I just want to view a pdf without downloading the file. Firefox keeps automatically downloading the file, then after viewing it, I have to manually delete. I don't to do this! I just want to view the file and if I want to keep it, I'll save a copy. This is extremely annoying! Can I change the settings so that the file won't automatically save to my computer? Thanks

When I try to download a file, the download always fails. This happens no matter what website I'm downloading the file from (see screenshot 1).

This started happening within the last week or so. We are running versions 97 and above.

Firefox is configured to always ask where to save files to (see screenshot 2).

Write permissions to the user's Downloads folder is denied for reasons unrelated to this issue (see screenshot 3). When I re-enable write permissions, the problem goes away.

Has anyone else run into this problem? Is write access to the Downloads folder required now, even if Firefox is not configured to save files to that location? Thanks!

Before the new update whenever I downloaded a file it would ask where to save the file to every time, now it just asks once then automatically saves any new files I download to the same folder as the previous ones, forcing me to then go to that folder and manually move it to the correct folders. Is there any way to change it back to the right way it was done before they decided to remove our choice? My setting is set to "Always ask you where to save files", with the emphasis on "Always".

Updating to version 98.0 onwards Firefox has started saving a copy of every pdf file I view (open) in my downloads folder.

My settings have not changed:

Tools->Settings->General->Applications: - pdf (application/download): Always ask - pdf (application/force-download): Always ask - pdf (application/pdf): Use Adobe Acrobat DC - pdf (application/x-download): Always ask

And when the "ask" dialog pops up, I choose "open".

I have tried all standard methods/troubleshooting, including resetting the handlers.json file.

The only way to avoid getting a copy in the downloads folder is if I choose "Open in Firefox" (application/pdf) instead of "Use Adobe Acrobat DC".

Any solution to this?

Thanks Michael

I am on a MAC 10.13.6 with the latest Firefox updates. I thought it might be my computer but with it working in other browsers, I wanted to see if I could get it fixed here. Thanks!

I don't want the pdf to save to disk without my will when I open a pdf file from any website. Fire Fox saves the file first, then opens it for reading. How to change it? I want to read the pdf first and then decide what to do with it. This works similarly in Edge. FF is my main browser, I wouldn't want to change that, but I have too much garbage on my disk. every pdf is saved first, completely unnecessary.
