Error message in FireFox

Every time I open a PDF in FireFox, I get an error message:  "There was an error opening this document. This file is already open or in use by another application."   Then, in order to open the PDF file, I have to go back to FireFox and click the "downloads" button (the down arrow), which I can click on to open the PDF.  It's incredibly annoying that the PDF doesn't just open.  I open dozens of PDF files each day, directly from websites ..... and I have to go through this double process every single time I click open a new PDF.

 

It never use to be life this, so something has changed.  Is there anyway to fix this???  Thanks!!  Michael

Firefox uses an internal PDF plugin, unrelated to Adobe. Issues with it should be reported to the developers of the browser.
