In Firefox 4
Tools > Options > Applications > Application/pdf I set to "always ask"
There are also other choices here.
Thankyou for that note. I had not spent the time looking at that menu. That seems like quite an improvement in FF4 over the previous versions.@mouser:
I don't have any problems with annoying PDF links since I started using Google docs to view them online by default.
If I want t save the PDF document after reading some of it, then I either save it into Google docs, or if I want the document on my laptop, then I download it from either Google docs or via the Flashgot add-in
and my GetRight downloader
I don't like to download PDF files of unknown size directly in the browser as they can be very slow to download if they are large. GetRight is fastest as I have it set to download a file in up to 4 sequential segments simultaneously (each segment being a unique slice of the file). GetRight sticks them together automatically (so CRC checksums remain valid).
