I have tried EVERYTHING to get PDFs to open in firefox on my mac. They worked about 6 months ago, but then stopped. I have tried changing. In my case, I am the opposite of yourself in that I do not want to preview a PDF in Firefox, but rather save it and open the saved file in Acrobat.
Seems like it is a Firefox glitch. But I don't know how to fix it. Hi Subak.
Thank you for your additional information. I think you have identified the root of the problem here:. I have been doing some research to see if there was an easy way to add additional file types. The Mozilla info is here:.
At the bottom of the page it has a heading " Add or remove a file type ", but it includes this sentence:. So, it looks like there is no easy mechanism to be able to set up how an aspx file is handled.
Unfortunately, I personally do not know how to work around that, but maybe one of the other contributors here might know something that I don't and be able to help you? Richard, you are a gentleman and a scholar. Many thanks for your time devoted to solving another's problems. I will persevere and hope another Firefox loyalist has some suggestions.
Thank you for your kind compliments! I am a noob contributor on here, just trying my best to help people with issues that I feel able to give some helpful advice on. Sometimes, as in your case, the problem turns out to be something that I do not know a definite answer to. I contacted one of the experienced contributors who is also a moderator about your issue and he advised me to request that you try installing the Adobe Acrobat Reader program, rather than just relying on the built-in Firefox ability to handle the file types.
As he put it:. I advise being careful on the download though, as Adobe very annoyingly to me adds other McAfee stuff unwanted by me to the download by default, so I always de-select that before clicking the button.
I did also find another Add-on that might help too. What is not actually clear to me is whether you can select a link to ANY file type e. I have Adobe and use it regularly.

The fellow that you contacted on my behalf thank you , in suggesting Adobe, talked about the Firefox built-in may not be able to handle some files. I can't seem to use the Firefox built in. I don't get the option to "Preview in Firefox. I have started using Safari whenever I need to read a pdf and don't like it as well as Firefox.
I am really stumped on this. If you have any other ideas, I am all ears.
Thanks for your time I just found an old support question for someone raising that problem and it was due to them looking at the actions for " PDF File " rather than " Portable Document Format PDF ", so I wonder if that is what you are doing too?
That was it Richard. But when I use Adobe in that drop down menu, it works like it used to. The setting in that drop down menu was set to "Save.
I don't know how it got switched to Save but you solved it for me!!!! I hope you can get a lot of satisfaction out of resolving this mystery and help a fellow human being.

I'm trying to set up firefox so that I can view PDFs in the browser instead of downloading them and opening them in Adobe.
I understand that to do this, you're supposed to go to Options and then under applications set Portable Document Format to Preview In Firefox. HI see if this rattles it's cage: Then run Windows Disk Cleanup. This should be Pinned and run Weekly, If never done below expect 10's of gig's Then run it again and click the button that says Cleanup System Files.
But you should make a back up before you do:. If you have an add-on installed such as the one from Adobe, try disabling it. The Preview in Firefox option should be available in that case. If nothing helps, reset the actions by removing the handlers. Unfortunately this didn't help. I tried deleting the handlers. I also disabled my Adobe add-on.

This was still the case even after I downloaded a new PDF. Try disabling the plugin from within the Adobe software. Apparently something is very agressive in maintaining it, so your changes are being overwritten.
