How do i disable pdfjs on android firefox 15?

The latest firefox for Android has an annoying "feature" that it trys to open pdf documents within the browser after a download. This does not work with the PDFs that we create internally (they display as white pages) so I need to disable it in favour of documents opening in acrobat as before. Is there a simple way to do this like there is on firefox for windows?

Firefox for Android does not ship with PDF.JS. Firefox may open PDF files with the default PDF app on your phone, if one is set.

  • The windows of the Windows bar are already a form of tabs, so I don't need them in Firefox. How can I disable them completely from Firefox 23?

    The Windows bar already functions as a tab bar. Those tabs are called "windows." So, I find Firefox tab windows superfluous. How can I disable them completely from Firefox 23? I don't need what is essentially TWO windows bars covering up the entire width of my widescreen monitor's image! I already have a Windows bar at the bottom of my screen and, if I really wanted to, I could change ITS position to the top of the screen, so that it would LOOK like the Firefox tab windows bar. Firefox TABS are, essentially, a superfluous SECOND WINDOWS BAR.
    Here are my reasons for why I'd rather use Mozilla's Firefox, than Microsoft's Internet Explorer or Google's Chrome. I love and admire Firefox for Mozilla's intent on good security, for Firefox's Personas add-on, and for Firefox's free use of the Ad-Block add-on which, as you know, has the distinct virtue of reducing screen clutter--the last of which is my motive for wanting to get rid of the SUPERFLUOUS Firefox tabs "windows" bar. I am dreadfully sick of companies forcing miscellaneous bars (mostly representing marketing campaigns trying to sell me something) into my browser (and down my throat) every time I download something. (In case you haven't guessed, I am deliberately referring to your Firefox tabs bar as a "Firefox tabs 'windows' bar," because TABS are WINDOWS!)

    Let me clarify even more. The Firefox add-on you mention does not remove "tabs" windows. It only HIDES the "tabs" bar when there is only one "tab" in that window. It DOES NOT end "tabs." It does not turn "tabs" off.
    I know this, because, even with the add-on you recommend, the "tabs" bar often re-appears when I open a link, which--for some unknown reason--Firefox defaults to opening in a second "tab" within the same window, rather than putting it in a new Windows bar window. This, of course, disregards what I want to happen.
    I want to use my Windows bar to control my windows. I do not want my Firefox browser controlling my windows--which it calls "tabs." Can you tell me how to shut off "tabs?"

  • How do I disable scrolling tabs in Firefox 17?

    How do I disable scrolling tabs in Firefox 17 without adding an extension from an
    unverified author? Please include the exact steps for Linux, OSX and Windows.
    Or I don't know put it back the way everyone wants it... Call me crazy.

    Do you mean by setting a lower minimum width for the tabs to make more tabs fit on the tab bar before scroll buttons appear?
    The Custom Tab Width extension adds this CSS rule and adjust the settings from the browser.tabs.tabMinWidth and browser.tabs.tabMaxWidth prefs.
    * Custom Tab Width:
    Add this code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line if you do not want to use the extension.
    <br />
    <pre><nowiki>@namespace url(""); /* only needed once */
    .tabbrowser-tab[fadein]:not([pinned]) { min-width: 100px !important; max-width: 250px !important; }</nowiki></pre>

  • How do you disable TheFreeDictionary from Mozilla Firefox?

    My browser was updated yesterday to 14.0.1 version, and now every time I double click on any word in any website, TheFreeDictionary opens in a new window defining that word. I did not download it as an extension, and if I do look it up on the Add-ons Manager, I even get the option to install it, not uninstall it. It is extremely pesky since I tend to, for various reasons, copy and paste words, and it's annoying having TFD window open each time.
    How can I disable it or get rid of it? Would I have to perhaps download the extension (again, apparently?) and then disable it?

    You can try to delete the files named '''extensions.*''' in the [ Firefox Profile Folder] after exiting Firefox, and then start Firefox. At startup Firefox would ask for permission and you can select '''Allow this installation''' and '''Continue''' for the needed ones, and leave the unwanted ones deselected, Click '''Restart''' only on the last tab. Afterwards you can '''Remove''' it from the [ Add-ons Manager].

  • How do I disable the welcome to firefox 15 page

    I just upgraded to FF 15 and every time I open my browser it goes thru this search function and then opens a welcome to ff 15 page & wants me to get the mobile browser. I don't want it and I don't want this page to load every time.
    How can I disable it? (in layman's terms please cuz I'm technically challenged. :D )

    And NOW I can't get my home page to load even tho I set it back to load w/my home page. grrrrrrrrr

  • How do I disable the tab with 'Firefox for Android' advertisement ? It is freaking me out

    Every time I open the Firefox browser, a new tab opens up with the ad suggesting me to try Firefox for android mobile. This is additional tab along with my regular home tab. My browser version is Firefox funnel cake 22.0 . It is freaking me out as this happens every time I open the browser. Provide me a solution or tell me to switch to a different browser. I mean who is the dumb idiot who suggested this idea ? Really ?? you want the add to stay there and irritate users everytime they open it ?

    Try to change your new tab by going to about:config, and in that address bar type in browser.newtab.url, right click it, and then hit modify. There will be a window that pops up that will let you type in the address you want to show up in your new tabs. There also might be a warning when going to about:config, but just accept it if it's there.

  • How can I Disable XI Plugin for Firefox?

    I have disabled the plugin on the Firefox plugin page (Tools>Add-ons), but it re-enables.  I have changed the two .dll files to .dxx.  Tools>Options>Applications does not show .pdf.  I also tried to disable from within Reader's options panel with no success.  I really don't want anything to open in my browser.  Can anyone help?

    Firefox by default uses its own PDF viewer, not the Adobe Reader plugin.  If you haven't manually changed that, it is not an Adobe Reader issue.

  • Disable thumnnails on android firefox

    The newtab thumbnails disclose too much information about my business interests. Often someone else will use my phone to look something up. If I can't disable this I will have to delete Firefox. This problem seems to be handled in the windows version.

    You can always use the the Guest Session feature to disallow the user from seeing anything apart from the default (i.e history, bookmarks, autocomplete).
    To enable this, go to menu > Tools > New Guest Session
    Once it is over, you can go to Menu > Exit Guest Session to have your Firefox back to normal without having anything else added by the guest usage.

  • How can I disable DNS queries in Firefox (when using a proxy) ?

    I am behind a "Chinese wall" and use an HTTP proxy to tunnel and encrypt my data traffic.
    Unfortunately, Firefox still sends DNS queries for the websites, that I visit and reveals more information than I want.
    Is there a way to disable DNS, when I use an HTTP/S proxy ?
    My current workaround is to set a firewall rule for outbound DNS traffic of Firefox. But not all users are able to configure their firewall.

    That is done via an onbeforeunload or onunload event that displays a JavaScript alert.
    You can try to search for a Greasemonkey script to reset and block such events.

  • How do I disable/delete Yahoo from FireFox 3.6.10?

    Yahoo search toolbar is present. How do I delete/remove.
    Also "new tab" brings up a Yahoo Search window.

    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    See [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] and [[Troubleshooting plugins]]
    You can also try "Reset all user preferences to Firefox defaults" on the [[Safe mode]] start window.
    There is also (security) software like AVG that can add toolbars to Firefox.

  • I hate tabs; how can I disable them permanently in Firefox 3.6.9?

    It appears that someone decided to mandate tabs in Firefox 3.6.9. A Google search of 'disable tabs Firefox' shows page upon page that reflect many users' dislike of tabbed browsing. Count me amongst them. If possible, please suggest a workaround, a setting, or an update to the add-in that will banish the tab 'feature' forever.

    You can come a long way with setting some Firefox prefs or use specific sequences.
