Do Not Open PDF in Firefox

April 13th, 2013 No comments

I don’t like opening pdf files in Firefox so I’d like to disable this feature. To do this, you need to configure both Acrobat and Firefox:

  1. In Firefox, go to Tools -> Options -> Applications. Define the default action for the Portable Document Format (PDF) as “Always Ask”.
  2. In Acrobat, go to Edit -> Preferences. In the “Internet” tab, uncheck “Display PDF in browser”.

This should disable opening PDF files in Firefox. Next time when you click a link to a PDF file, a window will pop up and ask what you want to do with the PDF file.
