Firefox now forces PDFs, even downloaded ones, to be opened in-browser. Frustrating is this setting has been introduced and right away replaced previous behaviour without any preceding notice, perfectly fine settings, now requiring to go to file explorer to open a PDF as if it was a file. How to disable this bloat?

Your latest update now saves every PDF I open to my desktop, I need this to stop ASAP, I open dozens and dozens per day and this is intolerable to the point I will uninstall Firefox if I cannot fix this quickly.

I have set the settings to always ask, it asks but still autosaves?

Before the most recent update (version 98.0), my default setting for pdf files is to open in Firefox and a pdf website I use prompted a download window when I clicked 'Download'. It has 'popupDownload=true' in the link which I believe did the trick.

After this update, clicking the same button just opens the pdf file instead of showing the download window, ignoring the command in the link.

Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance.

Make PDF behaviour in firefox consistent

PDF behaviour is pretty arbitrary.

In my settings I have 'Always Ask' for PDFs and 'Always ask' for Downloads: where to save files.

And yet - if I export a file from Google Docs as PDF (an action which I would expect to trigger an 'always ask' even if that were not the setting I had already set) - it does not ask; it just downloads to my home directory (which is not a directory specified anywhere as a preference for where to download to).

I am aware that this is probably Google's being creepy and exploiting some setting or lack of setting, but firefox should protect me against this and when multiple settings are set to 'always ask', firefox should, y'know, maybe ... ask.

Seriously - why is firefox making it the user's job to work out what weird exceptions to an explicit policy should be dealt with as a separate case? If the download and save routines are activated then, if the settings are set to 'ask' - it should [profanity] ASK.

Zero tolerance for profanity even if censored. Profanity removed

Tenho uma rede com mais de 500 computadores, publico documentos em pdf com bloqueamento de impressão na intranet, o firefox tem o plugin de pdf nativo e esse plugin quebra a segurança configurada do pdf, que no caso foi bloqueada a impressão e no firefox qualquer usuário consegue imprimir. Gostaria de saber como faço para desabilitar o plugin nativo pdf do firefox para todos os usuarios e que não consigam mais ter acesso em mudar a configuração, igual como fazemos com as configurações de proxy, onde fica desabilidado para o usuário a alteração
