I was under the impression that this will override any application plugins that are defined globally. I mean even if an nppdf.so existed in the global mozilla plugin directory it would be overridden by my personal setting. I prefer to launch Acrobat reader rather than using the default plugin due to problems with the plugin like even when I close tab, the acrobat reader is running in the background. With regards Arvind R. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. I setup the helper applications so that all pdf files will be opened by acrobat reader 2. Company wide mozilla plugin directory has nppdf.so 3. When I try to open an PDF file, it is always done using plug in and not separetely by Acrobat Reader Actual Results: When I try to open an PDF file, it is always done using plug in and not separetely by Acrobat Reader Expected Results: Opened using Acrobat Reader.
Summary: Reading PDF files goes to default viewer setting always. → Reading PDF files always goes to default viewer setting
