When I try to open an PDF file in the Firefox browser, the file reconizes a HTML file instead of PDF.

See question. The Adobe plugin is installed. It looks like Firefox attaches html to the file name.
I click on link on internet. A screen appears that says:
You have chosen to open (filename*.pdf) The icon for the file name shows an Internet Explorer icon. The it says: which is a: Acrobat Reader file. What should Firefox do with this file, you have two options: Open WIth and save file.

" Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Open Containing Folder" . i can't find open containing folder in profile directory. it does give me the option to open the places.sqlite file using graphic converter. when i try that, graphic converter gives me a window saying that it can't be opened because it is corrupted or is not a file type supported by graphic converter.
i appreciate your help with a workaround to get the old bookmarks. that works. however, the problem has morphed from that concern to why adobe reader [the default app.] won't open firefox .sqlite files. is the problem in adobe reader or firefox? also, how can i tell if the places.sqlite file is corrupt?
i'm getting in over my head here and do appreciate your help.

    Hello David.
    It's possible that you are having a problem with some Firefox add-on that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Have you tried disabling all add-ons (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal?
    Whenever you have a problem with Firefox, whatever it is, you should make sure it's not caused by one (or more than one) of your installed add-ons, be it an extension, a theme or a plugin. To do that easily and cleanly, run Firefox in [http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode safe mode] (don't forget to select ''Disable all add-ons'' when you start safe mode). If the problem disappears, you know it's from an add-on. Disable them all in normal mode, and enable them one at a time until you find the source of the problem. See [http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Troubleshooting+extensions+and+themes this article] for information about troubleshooting extensions and themes and [https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Troubleshooting+plugins this one] for plugins.
    If you need support for one of your add-ons, you'll have to contact its author.
    If the problem is not disappears when all add-ons are disabled, please tell me, so we can work from there.

  • When I try to open a second page in safari I press the " +" button but it automatically closes out of safari.. Wht should I do?

    When I try to open a second page in safari I press the " +" button but it automatically closes out of safari.. What should I do?- thanks

    Try clearing Safari's cache : Settings > Safari > Clear Cookies And Data and also Clear History
    If that doesn't fix it then try closing Safari via the taskbar and see if it works when you re-open it :
    iOS 7 :double-click the home button to open the taskbar, and then swipe or drag the Safari app's screen from there up and off the top of the screen to close it, and click the home button to close the taskbar.
    iOS 6 and below : from the home screen (i.e. not with Safari 'open' on-screen) double-click the home button to bring up the taskbar, then press and hold any of the apps on the taskbar for a couple of seconds or so until they start shaking, then press the '-' in the top left of the Safari app to close it, and touch any part of the screen above the taskbar so as to stop the shaking and close the taskbar.
    A third option if the above doesn't fix it is a soft-reset : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

  • Digital Editions crashes when I try to open a library borrowed (epub) book or transfer the book to my nook.

    My Digital Editions crashes when I try to open a library borrowed (epub) book or transfer the book to my nook. Please help.  I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling.

    Dear Library Partner,
    Apple released iOS 7 yesterday and many of your Apple users may have upgraded their device(s) or will be upgrading in the near future.
    When an existing OverDrive Media Console (OMC) user upgrades to iOS 7, the app will fail when trying to open a DRM-protected eBook. New or first time users of OMC are unaffected by this issue.
    We are resolving the issue but in the meantime, here are immediate remedies for users:
    1) Re-authenticate the app with their existing or a new Adobe ID. Refer to the iOS section of this Help articlefor assistance. (Recommended)
    2) Uninstall and re-install OMC which will also require the user to re-authorize with Adobe. IMPORTANT NOTE: A re-install will clear a user's bookshelf, history, and app settings.
    Audiobook users won't notice that anything is different unless they attempt to download parts of audiobooks they already downloaded to OMC before upgrading to iOS 7. A user will receive an error message informing them to download the title again.
    We encourage you to share this information with your users via email, Facebook or Twitter.
    We apologize for the inconvenience.
    Regards,
    OverDrive's Partner Services"

    I am having a problem with the FireFox browser. I have attached two files that best describe the problem. I have labeled them A & B. A is the way it should look and B is what happens after I have I opened several tabs. I can get it back to normal if I click on VIEW than click on customize. When the customize window appears FireFox returns to its normal state. I than click on the done box and go back to what I have been doing. I tried resetting FireFox back to default settings, but that did not correct the problem.
    This began happening about a month ago. Is there a way I can fix this problem? Thanks for your help.I don't know how to attach my 2 attachments that shows the problem I am having.

  • HT3523 I can play an .mov file but cannot open it to move it to another drive/disc/etc. When we try to open it, we get a message that says "The movie file for "beanmine.mov" cannot be found. Without this file, the movie cannot play properly."

    We can play a .mov file (a full-length film created in final cut pro) but cannot actually open it in QuickTime. We get the error message saying that a file is missing, and the movie can't play properly without the file. The thing is, we can play the film, we just can't open it to move it to another drive. Help?
    Also, can the lost file (which was deleted) be recovered from a Mac HD or an external hard drive?
    Help!

    Sounds like you created a "Reference" file here. I.e., a "Reference" file is a file that tells the player how to play the data contained in a "Resource" file. When you try to open the "Reference" file in the QT Player app, the first thing the player does is check to see if the "Resource" data file is is still available where it is supposed to be. (I.e., moving/deleting the resource file or moving reference file without moving the resource file to maintain the relative path between the two will generate the error message you mentioned.)
    Also, can the lost file (which was deleted) be recovered from a Mac HD or an external hard drive?
    That depends. Deleting a file does not actually erase the data immediately. Instead, the operating system just tells the system directory that the space containing the movie data is available for reuse if/when needed. As time passes, the chance that some of the data sectors will be re-written by other data continuously increases. To restore the file normally requires use of a special utility that both locates and restores all of the linked sectors containing the "deleted" movie data in their correct order. Other methods of restoring files would depend on the software you routinely have active on your system. For instance, do you use "TimeMachine?" or orther software that automatically backs up your data periodically? If so, then follow the instructions for your particular application to recover a deleted file.

  • Can't open Firefox. When I try to open, a window pops saying "Close Firefox" and "A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time.", and doesn't allow the application to open.

    Came home to find computer restarted, which I assume is an automatic Firefox update.
