Default Firefox 3.6.8 and pdf files

Is it correct that FF3.6.8 no longer offers to save pdf files to disk but automatically displays them? I remember previous versions allowing me to save a pdf file to disk rather than displaying it in a browser window.

Yes I think that is true but you can then just select "Save page as" from the file menu and save it as normal anyway.

Thanks, the right-click method works just fine! I'd forgotten about that.

I just tried to save to disk and I was able to do it like always. Click on file
and get the choices.

Bo, left-click or right-click? The left-click automatically opened the pdf file in the browser using Acrobat Reader (!) while the right-click gave me the choice to save to disk.

Tools > Options.. > Applications
PDF documents and its action should be displayed there. You can modify it to suit your needs.

Hi Vasa1, I dont have the PDF FF plugin installed so whenever I left click
on a PDF file I get the choice to open as a PDF file(not on browser) or to
save to disk. This happens on Firefox and it works the same as always as
far as I can tell. In other words, dont see any difference now than before.

That was it. I forgot to disable the plugins after I reinstalled FF 3.6.8. Thanks!
