How can I make firefox show me PDF files without forcing me to save them first.

If Firefox asks you to save the file every time you browse to a PDF file, try this.

Pick Tools and then Options as shown above or pick the menu button and then Options a shown at the right.

A new Firefox tab named Options will open as shown below.

Pick the Applications item at its left as shown above to get the Applications list shown below.

If the program isn't there, pick Use Other..., select it from the new list, and pick OK.
As shown above, scroll the alphabetic Applications list down to find Portable Document Format (PDF) and pick it.
Then drop down its Action list at the right (which probably says "Save File").
Select the program you want (usually Adobe Reader).

Finally, Close the Options tab as shown below. The change takes effect immediately.
