I used to be able to click on a link in Firefox and have a PDF file open in acrobat directly. Now I am required to save the file before I can open and view the file. I haven't been able to find any option for changing this. Appreciate any help!

Hello and thanks.

Tried that...

Assume you are referring to the tool bar in Firefox, yes?

When I go to "Tools" I don't see  "options."

Note screen shot below for what i see:

Hello again to TRY67

Never mind!!

I had to go to the Firefox preferences > General >Applications> and then was able to select how to open the pdf!

YAY!

Thanks for the encouragement to search out the "Application" options!

Big help!
