How can I get firefox to open a pdf file in adobe instead of the new pdf reader?

Before the recent update, 19.0, I google something and see [PDF] next to a link. I click the Center button to open it in a new tab. Firefox might download the file and open it with Adobe Reader. I like this.

With the new update 19.0, the pdf file would open in the new tab. I have to down load it and then open it in Adobe. I don't like this.

I'm going to preferences under applications. I look to see if I can change that. Next to document Adobe Reader, I choose to use Adobe Reader, but when I click on a link [PDF], it always opens the file in Firefox and not Adobe.

I want to go back to the way it was.


Problem: Open a pdf file in Firefox, he wants to save the file.
In Firefox, tools, Options, choose the column on the left (Content Type) Applications tab, select Portable Document Format (pdf). Right column (Action) choose Preview in Firefox.
I use Firefox 21.0.

  • How can I get Firefox to open a Visio drawing that is saved as a .vdx file? Firefox is fine with Visio drawings, stored as a .vsd files.

    I need to store Visio files in VDX format for compatibility of Subversion.
    When I ask Firefox to open a VOD on the network, it shows correctly the file is a Visio file and asks if I want to save it. I select Yes, then the file opens in Visio.
    When I ask Firefox to open vdx at the same location on the network, it treats the file as a text file and open it immediately - no option to open with or save.
    I tried to reset Firefox, but it did not help.
    The application in Settings tab does not show the Visio file types in both cases.
    The underlying Windows 7 file association for vsd and VDX is set on Visio.

  • How can I get my delete video and image files to be saved in the trash?

    original title: how to delete a file?

    I did a lot of videos... pictures with music.

    I would like to remove many of the videos but not sure how to proceed.  I want to keep the pictures that are in the video, but I don't know how to do this.  The last time I deleted the videos I lost the photos and has never been able to recover these photos from the Recycle Bin.  I also thought that maybe I should just remove all the pictures of the video and to remove the video.  I don't know if I should do this... I'm afraid that somehow the images will be deleted, and I will never see them again.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thank you for your quick response.  What I can do is to make a slide show.  What I do is to put pictures in a slideshow video.  I add photos, and I can add music.  I can only put these pictures with the music on a CD.  I can only play the disc for people to watch that is if I can make them sit down to watch it... ha ha.

    My problem is that since I have the pictures and music on my drive, I don't have the folder that is located on my computer that contains images and music.  I want to remove this folder, but unfortunately when I do not delete the folder, the photos are also deleted and I'm not able to recover from the trash.  (I know that things can be recovered from the Recycle Bin, but I tried this and made a real mess).

    I know it's a little confusing but I hope you understand what I'm trying to say.  Do you have any suggestions?  If this isn't the case, it's ok.  You're very kind for trying to help me and I appreciate it.

    Thanks again.  Carole67

    Sorry, but it's confusing to me...

    How to create your slideshow video? Movie Maker? DVD Maker?

    I do not understand why you want to delete a folder that contains pictures
    you do not want to delete.

    Here's the thing... If you create a file of the video... that you can display in
    Windows Media Player and share with others... your photos have been
    coded in a different format. It's not the same as a backup of
    your photos and you should keep your original photo files.

    If you just want to make a backup of your photos to archival purposes...

  • How can I get FireFox to work on the first Google ChromeBook addition? He repeats to me upgrade and when I do it says does not support?

    How can I get FireFox to work on the first version of the Google ChromeBook? Everytime I open it it said to update or upgrade to FireFox and make it your main page. So I downloaded it and it's open once it is installed, but then a message appears that says "can't stand" search for an application that supports FireFox and its software, or something of the sort. I was sitting here with a full battery when I started and now it is dead... and I still don't have FireFox on my ChromeBook.

    What do I do now or how do I get it to work? And if it just simply won't work on a CHromeBook then they need to have that riht out in the open.


    I had a peek in this and was informed that Firefox does not work on Chrome OS.

    It is designed and done a little differently from the likes of Windows and Linux and will not support another browser being installed.
