As best i could find, our forum does not have a thread applicable to my scenario.
As best i could find, the interwebs have mainly [/only?] prehistoric topics on this.
Each month i reconcile my Amex & MasterCard accounts against my records. To do so i log into my respective member portals to see the preceding month’s eStatement. Duh, yawn, so what?
If i use Chromium, or the Vivaldis, both eStatements open drama-free within the browser as a new tab. That is my preference.
If i use Firefox, Firefox-Dev.Ed, or PaleMoon, & despite my pdf setting in each one unambiguously set to view PDFs in the browser, not with external pgm…
…they defy me & popup a dialog box giving me the choice only to Save, or to open in an external pgm of my choice.
I have looked at all
about:config, but cannot perceive one that might be clearly causing this naughtiness.
I have opened FF naked, not in Firejail per my standard practice. No improvement.
I have relaunched FF in
Safe Mode sans all Add-ons. No improvement.
To say i am “displeased” with this silliness would be solidly euphemistic.
The fact that i can’t see signs of major chunks of the proletariat complaining about also having this hassle, really puzzles/surprises me.
Boilerplate Mozilla pap like this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/view-pdf-files-firefox only increases my irritability.
Please, Manjaroos, what obvious setting / thingie am i missing here?
