How to prevent a new tab in Firefox to open when you open a PDF file in Adobe.

First of all, this problem started Monday, August 25, 2014 when I was forced to update Firefox to log in my accounting online program. I had no such problem in the previous version of Firefox.

When I open a PDF document to an e-mail (which displays a Firefox icon next to it), the document opens in Adobe reader, but also a blank tab opens in Firefox, even with it is not already open. When I close the PDF, the Firefox tab remains open and I have to close it manually. Happening with PDF documents that I saved to the network of my company or my computer (which have the Adobe icon). I don't want to have to save a PDF file on my computer as a workaround for this problem.

Under Tools > Options > Applications, I already spent the Adobe/PDF options to open it in Adobe. In addition, in topic: config, the value of 'pdfjs.disabled' reads 'true' and 'plugin.disable_full_page_plugin_for_types' contains "application/pdf".

I work with a lot of PDF files and I'm frustrated to the point where I'm about to uninstall Firefox and just use Internet Explorer.

Hello, it works when you enter in the Acrobat > edit > Preferences > General & click on the application by default option at the bottom? to reselect it adobe application and confirm this selection...

  • 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.

  • How to prevent a new tab to open

    When I open the web browser FireFox, which is preparing to go to my Home Page opens a "New tab" page that covers my homepage. This 'new tab' also appears EACH time I go to a web site. This 'new tab' covers the site and I have to close the "new tab" page of the web site.

    How can I stop this? I don't want this kind of 'help '.

    Hmm, sounds like an add-on. Here are my suggested procedure to find and remove the bad modules. This is based on the unfortunate fact that many bad modules arrive as part of a download of free software rather than something you have installed voluntarily on the site of modules.

    (1) open the Control Panel, uninstall a program. After the loading of the list, click on the column heading "installed on" to group infections, I mean additions by date. This can help the undisclosed items bundle smoker who snuck out with some software, you have agreed to install. Out as much garbage as possible here.

    (2) open Firefox page modules using either:

    • CTRL + SHIFT + a
    • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons

    In the left column, click on Plugins. Set essential and unrecognized plugins 'never enable '.

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then, in case of doubt, disable (or delete, if possible) not recognized and unwanted extensions.

    Often, a link will appear above at least an extension disabled to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links in the last step.

    Any improvement?

    (3) you can search the rest of problems with scanning/cleaning tools listed in our technical support article: Troubleshooting Firefox problems caused by malware. These scanners on request are free and take a long time to run. If they end quickly, especially if they require the payment you have a serious infection. I suggest the specialty forums listed in the article in this case.

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

    I guess you have been following this article: Firefox says it's just updated each time that it starts - how to fix. Note that the most recent Firefox 33.1 (your user watch 33.0 agent), so if you use later, try to update again and see if that makes the page appears for the last time.

    If the above does not work, try to go through How to set preferences that will not save. It could be a third-party application like antivirus software prevents your update preferences or a user.js file.

    Who Subject: config line did you mean erase? I don't think you can remove entries from the configuration, unless you added it yourself and remove it from the prefs.js file. You can reset the default preferences or change their values. It is not safe to blindly change your configuration as it has no influence on how Firefox is running.

  • How can I keep my visible background layer when you create a GIF file in Adobe Photoshop elements 11?

    I am trying to create a GIF in Adobe Photoshop elements 11.  To give you the objective of the final result - I am trying to create the illusion of dog legs walking on a yellow background.  Each image individual leg is a separate layer on the yellow background.  I want my background layer to ALWAYS show during the animation.  In ADDITION, I want each paw image to stay on the yellow background that he hosts (if possible).  Here are the steps that I took:

    1. I have my background layer (yellow background)
    2. I layered all the other images on the top (8 paw print images)
    3. I placed these images where I want them on the background layer

    I know that to create a GIF file, I go to 'Save the image for the web', select GIF and click "animate".  The problem is when I preview the animation, it's a single image at a time, instead of the overlay and keeping them on the screen as the animation progresses.

    At the very least, I want the yellow background to show during the animation.  I can live with that if the paw prints don't stay on ;-)

    I would appreciate any insight/help!  Thank you!

    I think that you need to merge each layer with your yellow background, and then try again the gif.

    In other words, put the yellow background under each layer and merge the top layer with the yellow background.

  • How can I change the color of text selection when you edit a pdf file?

    I was fussing around with preferences in Adobe Acrobat Pro XI (Mac version) and off the selected text color when the text selection. I don't know what preference I changed and can't seem to find a second time to restore the color of text selection. Usually, in Adobe Acrobat Pro XI, when the selection of text (note: NOT the text stressing the function), AAP XI has a color to the selected text.  This preference restaurantrare the saltsummer color of the text when you use the selection tool i-beam appearing to the left of the hand tool?
