hi there

since this morning when I click on a pdf file in the FF browser it is opening up in google docs.

I am running the latest version of FF with win 10 pro.

In settings, i have the association for pdf files set for pdf-xchange editor, and this has worked fine since for ever, until now.

May I kindly ask for your help to insure pdf files open in the default app I have selected please?

kindest thanks
best regards
peter

Hi Peter, if the PDFs are attachments to GMail messages, a plain click may do that, but you should be able to use the download option to choose your own viewer. For other PDFs not under Google's control, if they are diverted to Google Docs, is it possible that one of your add-ons is doing that?

hi Jscher2000

thank you so much for your reply.

Miracles happen, not experiencing any problems anymore.
I didn't do anything.
I just clicked on a pdf file, in Thunderbird, all's well, and in FF, I googled a document, clicked on the pdf, and voila opened up in my pdf reader app

thanks again
cheers
peter
