I have Adobe Reader 7 and Firefox 1.5 loaded onto a new PC. I cannot get FFox to open PDF type files from the web. It will open PDF files saved in a folder. In Ffox options, download manager view and edit it list file extensions but not PDF. It allows removal of ex's but there seems no way of adding. My wife's PC has the same software but her Ffox download manager includes PDF files and they open from the web normally. Can anyone help please? Thanks.
Thanks Fruitbat but all the boxes were already ticked and it still doesn't work. Dogs breath - thanks. PDF files are not included in the list under View and edit. Moreover there doesn't seem to be a way to add them - only remove or edit existing extensions!! any other ideas?? Thanks
Solved - but strange solution. I downloaded Foxit (thanks Stuartli) That put PDF file extension into Ffox ,download manager, change/edit. When I tried a PDF download it opened in foxit - great (Thanks again) Interestingly, with PDF extension now showing in Firefox I was able to use the edit in download Mgr to switch to Adobe 7. So now I have the option of either Foxit or Adobe A result Thanks again to all.
