Most time I click a PDF-link FF downloads the PDF and correctly openes it afterwards in Adobe Reader. But sometimes it askes me what to do with that file (open, save ..) with default-action "open in Adobe Reader", even though the field "always use this action" (sorry for translation, I use german-language version of FF) is clicked FF askes for filehandling from time to time (for some urls/files). I have the same problem with .torrent-files I want to be handled by Azureus always, but FF mostly askes what to do. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. http://www.filmstarts.de/produkt/49658,Zombie%20King%20And%20The%20Legion%20Of%20Doom.pdf Actual Results: asking what to do with filetype PDF Expected Results: opening in Adobe Reader as set in the options
That file is being served with the following http header: content-disposition: attachment; filename=Zombie%20King%20And%20The%20Legion%20Of%20Doom.pdf which is a header designed specifically for non-automated further action of the user and it's likely the other times you've seen this happen have also used that header. From https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=285976#c4 "Currently, selecting "always do this" when a file is sent with the "Content-disposition: attachment" header results in the value of the checkbox being ignored, since the header indicates that "[the content's] display should not be automatic, but contingent upon some further action of the user" [rfc 2183] and doing something automatically would violate that."
