"Preview in Firefox" for pdf web pages but not for file links ?

I like the preview pdf in Firefox feature but I seem to be having a bit of a problem with it.
In options>applications I have the pdf entry set to preview in Firefox and when I click a link to pdf webpages they load in Firefox just fine.
The problem seems to be with download links to pdf files. When I click a link to a pdf file the only options are to save the file, open with my pdf viewer (Foxit Reader) or other. Preview with Firefox is not an option any more.
I've been trying everything to get that option back.
I know I have seen it there before but I've no idea how it disappeared.
Any suggestions?

The build-in PDF Viewer only works for files that are send as application/pdf and not for other MIME types.<br />
So it won't work for links that open a download dialog and you would need an extension to open such a file as application/pdf.

  • Home sharing is working fine for musics and videos but not for apps. What is wrong?

    Home sharing is working fine for musics and videos but not for apps. What is wrong?

    i had the same issue as everyone here after upgrading to itunes 10.x.  vista could see xp home share.  ipod touch could see xp home share.
    neither could see vista home share.
    after several hours of authorizing de-authorizing, rebooting router etc, i knew it had to be a firewall thingy with vista as xp was working fine
    i went to this article http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2553 and followed the instructions.  itunes was already in my vista exception list.  on a hunch i deleted the itunes exception and followed the steps to add it again and boom it worked!! i could now see my vista machine from my ipod touch immediately.
    something must have screwed up the firewall exception on the upgrade to itunes 10.x
    it worked for me, i hope this helps others

  • Firefox opens web pages but not all the data or pictures.

    Firefox 22.0 opens web pages slowly, it takes up to 30 seconds to load and then not all the pictures and data is loaded or it times out. If I hit the reload button, everything loads OK. This happens on mant sites, not just a few.
    I use Google Chrome as my primary browser, and it is quite fast. My internet connection is commercial and it is OMG fast. I would like to replace Google Chrome( I hate being tracked), but at this point, the Firefox is just too slow.
    Please advise how to correct these issues.

    Which security software (firewall, anti-virus) do you have?
    Make sure that Firefox is fully trusted in your security software.
    You can check for problems with preferences and rename or delete the prefs.js file and possible numbered prefs-##.js files and a possible user.js file to reset all prefs to the default value.
    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
    *Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window or otherwise make changes.

  • The fix for loading web pages-What works for me.

    Ever since I went to Tiger I have had problems with Safari and any other browser while at work on my dsl connection. I knew it was not the connection because my G4 with 9.2.2 would work. At home on cable Tiger worked fine. What I found out is that the router/server combination my ip used were Sisco and for some reason Tiger does not work well with them. I asked a programmer familiar with linux to help me and he gave me some code to type into terminal and guess what it works great!... almost! Every time I start Safari I have to enter the code and all is fine. Here is the code
    sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.rfc1323=0
    See if it works for you and let me know. You will find terminal in Applications/Utilities just copy the code and paste if you want. I had problems before just getting web sites like ups.com to load or even google search pages to load.

    Thanks for the tip... I don't have the problem, but others must!

  • Trouble loading some web pages but not others

    having a little trouble lately...
    For some reason safari and, well, any other browser, come to think of it isnt work on particular pages.
    Example. The other day google.com wasnt coming up just spinning its wheels then saying:
    Safari can’t open the page “http://google.com/” because it could not connect to the server “google.com”.
    Another example: Safari could not open the page “http://cbgundaker.com/” because the server stopped responding.
    I called my ISP and sat thru 2 hours worth of trouble shooting and got nowhere. They thought it was a DNS issue but I can reach the sites from other machines in the network so it looks like it is only effecting this particular powerbook. I've sat two machines down next to each other and it'll work on one but not the other(same wireless or wired network). annoying.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    pardon me for butting in, this problem is driving me crazy.
    i just tried your dns thing, no effect.
    what i can't understand is why does my iBook display all 5 pages that i can't display on my iMac? i visit these sites everyday
    -the bookmarks are synced between the two, iBook and iMac use same internet
    -i copied the iBook plist for internet and safari over to my iMac-no change
    -i did all the resets, clear cache, disk utility,ditch plists
    -safari, camino,opera,firefox,shirra do not open these 5 pages
    -macworld.com opens fine, macworld.com/news/ does not
    -my admin account does not display these 5 pages
    -i turned on airport, connected to someone's unprotected network and tried the sites to no avail (i have my own wired internet connection)
    -it hangs on the 2nd to last item in the progress bar, ie "8 out 9 items"
    -this all started sometime after the last security update and before10.4.6
    i am at wits end!

  • Problem w/"combo boxes" cause the user to double click for the dropdown menu, but not for everyone.

    I have created a form with Adobe Acrobad Pro 9.
    There are a few "drop-down" boxes for people to choose options from.  I created them with the "Combo box" option.  They work perfectly fine on my laptop (Lenovo T500 windows 7, with all updates up to date.)  I sent the file to another exact same computer and that's when the problem came up.  When you click on the drop-down, the list will quickly appear and then disappear.  Then if you click it again it will stay open so you can choose your option.  However this only happens on "some" computers but not everyone's.  I emailed the exact same form out to other people in my office and they do not have any problems with the form.  There is no need to double click the drop down, it will just open up properly for them.
    Has anyone come across this? And if so, is there maybe a setting on these specific laptops that is preventing the "combo box" to not work properly?  I need to use this specific laptop as a "Kiosk" like a "check out" station for users to fill out the form to check out equipment.  I will be running in Reader so people can not make changes to the form.  (both the Acrobat Pro 9 version and the (most up to date) Reader version of the PDF form does the same "double-click" problem)  I need a date drop down and an equipment type drop down.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated !
    Thanks !

    I've got this kind of problem with a form of mine (designed with LCD) :
    - combo boxes with font-color changing event handlers on :enter
    - on Acrobat 9 Pro : no problem
    - on Reader 8.3 :
          - first click seems to execute the event handler but stops the combo's opening
          - second click does open the combo
    Do you have event handlers on combo:enter ?
    Could the difference between comps where it works and comps where it doesn't be Acrobat's version ?

    changed "database link db1" to "database link db2" per comments by SB
    Edited by: enquad on Apr 12, 2013 3:00 PM
    Changed "user" to "OS user" in subject for clarity

    enquad wrote:
    Sorry gentlemen and SB, but my question is still not answered. It is a new question, which I have not found answered elsewhere.
    To summarize:
    SB97025 informs me that db1 is not a database link, but I never said that it was. It is the second database (anonymized as "db2") that is connected to through the database link "db2.mycompany.net".
    SB97025 also wonders intriguingly if my DBA and I are we really connecting to the same database when we each connect to user1 on db1. Perhaps the Oracle server and my PC have TNSNAMES.ORA files that lead us to different databases for the same TNS alias? I do not believe this is the case, because my DBA created that user1 and that database link in the db1 database specifically for the purpose of doing this test and I see that same link when I connect to user1 on db1. Unless my DBA is spoofing me by creating user1 in two different databases - only one of which contains a working dblink named db2.mycompany.net - just for the purpose of throwing me off, I would have to conclude that he and I are actually connecting to the same database.There is no reason to "believe" (or not) that "this is the case". The entire point of SB's comment on that was to get you to verify. President Reagan famously said "trust but verify". He never worked as a DBA. I say "don't trust, just verify".
    Obviously something is different. And at this point the most likely and easiest to confirm is that you and your DBA really are connecting to the same database, on the same host server, using the same link. And at this point all we really have is to trust your DBAs statement.
    Ed Stevens reminds me that db1 is acting as a client to db2 and so the solutions to the ORA-12154 are the same as for any client connection as listed on his blog (which I had already read), none of which solve my problem. Rembember, the DBA can use the database link, so by whatever means the TNS lookup is happening when he uses it, the correct connection description is being found. The question is not "why does this stinkin' database link not work"? It does work for the DBA.
    Pierre wants to make sure I know that it is the Oracle server's TNSNAMES file that is the important thing, not my client's TNSNAMES file, which is true but not relevant to my problem and I was never so naive. He also says that I could try creating a database link by including the full TNS entry in the USING string, which does work as I had already mentioned in my original post.
    Amar asks if my DBA can: sqlplus username/[email protected]
    The answer is yes. The dba can use SQL*Plus to connect to db2 from the server hosting db1 and can connect to db1 from the server hosting db2. There is almost nothing my DBA cannot do.
    None of the posters addressed the key information in my post, which was the different result my DBA and I get when using the same database link in the same schema on the same database. That AND the fact that my DBA is logged on to Linux Oracle serve as user "oracle" and I am logged in to my PC. Why should it matter to a database link which computer is running SQL*Plus or who the OS user is?
    Also the GLOBAL_NAMES parameter is set to FALSE.

  • Change pointer triggers for one order type but not for other with LOIPRO

    Hi all,
    We have old production order type ZP01 since last 3 years. Idoc LOIPRO are triggered properly. Now we introduced new production order type ZP02, but idocs are not triggereing for these prod. orders. They both are production orders with different order types but same message type LOIPRO
    I noticed that change pointers are not getting written to CDHDR and CDPOS for this new order type. For old order type they are getting written to CDHDR/CDPOS. Does any one know where is the issue in config.
    Currently BD52 contains following entries for LOIPRO
    Thanks in advance

    Anyone with an idea.
    The project went live by using RCCLORD or RCCLTRAN, but still the same orders keep triggering. How do we restrict the already processed production orders.

  • Quicktime works for Apple QT test page but not for Apple trailers

    I'm using XP Pro SP2. I've installed the latest QT 7.1.3. Looking at http://www.apple.com/quicktime/troubleshooting/
    QT works fine. But on going to any of the websites at Apple trailers I just get QT with a question mark logo.
    I've read the posts with similar problems but there seem to be no definitive answers.
    Is it possible for anyone in Apple to suggest a solution.

    If you go to your account page there should be a Downloadable Software Purchases link on the left, and that takes you to a page that should show your QT Pro number.

  • Adobe flash 11.4 keeps crashing in Firefox--I see fixes for 11. 3 but not for 11.4; HELP!

    Every time I open Firefox, I get the popup message that says "Adobe flash player 11.4 r402 has stopped working." It pops up over and over and I have to cancel it just to perform a simple function in Firefox. I'm not even trying to view a video through Flash Player. And if I try to, it doesn't work, anyway.
    I don't know what to do, but I've basically stopped using Firefox altogether, and that's not what you want. Please help!

    First, try to update to Flash 11.5. [[Use plugins to play audio, video, games and more#w_how-to-update-plugins|How to update plugins]]. Then, if Flash still crashes, follow the directions for Flash 11.3 and see if they stop the 11.5 crashes. [[Flash 11.3 crashes]]
