I am using FF as my browser on my Android tablet. Most of the time whenever I click on a link to download and open an Adobe Acrobat file I get the message:

'Error. File could not be dowlloaded. Please save fie to your local storage and then try to open it.'

So, I then have to open up Chrome and open the PDF file from there.

Why does FF so often have these issues opening a PDF file? And is there a way to do what it actually says, to save the file to storage first? I want to support and use FF but this is a pain and a waste of time.
