Firefox Android now opens PDF files in the browser. This is not something that I want. Is it possible to disable this "feature"?
If the answer is "move to nightly builds and muck about with about:config" then I will be uninstalling and canceling my Firefox subscription.
Agreed here. It also makes downloading pdfs so difficult. I don't want to be stuck in my browser while some file is downloading. I just want to click "download" and forget. I want to see the progress of the download in case it fails.
Current pdf functionality of Firefox on android offers none of that. It's unusable. I have to resort to launching chrome just to download a single pdf file.
Meanwhile it is possible to make Firefox usable again by setting pdfjs.disabled to true
This is beyond annoying. The Firefox PDF viewer does not work! It produces a jumble that is totally unreadable. I'm attaching two files; the first is a pdf file downloaded and displayed in Firefox on a Windows 11 machine, the second is the same pdf downloaded and displayed on a Samsung Galaxy S6Tab tablet.
I have used Firefox as my browser of choice since its inception. This "feature" now has me considering if I should switch to Chrome... which, incidently displays the pdf file just fine on the pad.
Well, it appears I can't attach 2 files so the one you will see is Android Firefox. You will have to take my word that this displays just fine everywhere else.
