Hello

I want to open pdfs from firefox (snap 101.0.1) with the default application of the system (Xubuntu 22.04) and not open them in a new tab within forefox.

But it does not work, as if there was a problem with the system handler but only for pdfs and not for other file formats.

More details :

  • I changed Preferences/general/Applications for pdfs to use either "always ask" (and then chose "open" " With system handler" when asked) or "default system application". In both cases the pdf is downloaded but not opened. If I right click on the downloaded pdf in the list of downloaded files and then chose "open with system handler", nothing happens.
  • Opening the pdf inside Firefox works well and opening pdfs saved on my disk (outside firefox) as well.
  • Opening other file format by choosing to open them from firefox with the system handler works well too (tested eg with .torrent, .xls, .tif,...).
  • I tried to change the default system application for pdf (Atril) to other softwares without success (Okular, Evince).
  • If I try to open a .djvu file with the "system handler" it is opened correctly using Atril which is the also default for pdfs... So Atril works for .djvu files but not for pdfs...
  • I tried to replace the handlers.json file from my profile by a handler.json file from a brand new profile, without success (I still have a backup of my old profile file if needed). I did that because opening with the system application worked before and the bug appeared after I changed all applications preferences to "always ask" (and there were a lot of them in my rather old handlers.json file).

I'm lost...

Firefox has become very slow for some two weeks om my desktop with Linux Xubuntu 18.04. Some sites can be approached without problems except for the speed, other sites are opened after some time, but freeze so that scrolling and clicking on links won't work. I tried to find an answer in the Settings......
