The list will display only items that are set to "Use Firefox".
Select each problematic content type and choose a new action from the drop-down menu in the Action column. If you're not sure which action to pick, choose Always ask.
Close the about:preferences page. Any changes you've made will automatically be saved.
For general information about content types, see Change what Firefox does when you click on or download a file. Reset actions for all content types If the preceding steps didn't fix the problem, or if you can't find the problematic item in the Applications list, you will have to reset the actions for all content types by manually deleting the file that stores these settings. This will remove all customized content type actions, not just the one that is causing the problem.

Is there a problem with downloadlinks beginning with http: In Chrome for example the link works without any problems. Chosen solution Hello Wolpertinger I just opened the website, and it is working fine with me.
You may test "Preview in Firefox" to see if the link is opened inside Firefox or not.
Read this answer in context 1. I have this problem, too. If you have an add-on installed such as the one from Adobe, try disabling it. The Preview in Firefox option should be available in that case. If nothing helps, reset the actions by removing the handlers. Unfortunately this didn't help.
I tried deleting the handlers. I also disabled my Adobe add-on.
The only thing that's seemed to change is that now neither PDF nor Adobe Document are appearing under content types under Applications. This was still the case even after I downloaded a new PDF.
Try disabling the plugin from within the Adobe software. Apparently something is very agressive in maintaining it, so your changes are being overwritten. Try downloading a PDF from somewhere else.
