Foxit Reader

Is anybody familiar with Foxit Reader and using it within Firefox browser?
Until recently, if I clicked on a PDF file from within Firefox it would bring up the file in Foxit Reader, where I could then read it or save it. But now when I click on a PDF file it immediately goes in to File Save mode.

How can I get it back to opening the file in read mode?

Nope. Didn't solve the problem.

To answer your question, Yes.
However, this seems to be a function of a Firefox switch (on or off) that I can't find. If using Chrome, a PDF file will open directly in Foxit Reader and then I have the option to save it or read it or whatever.

Ray, I think you found the problem. I'll just have to wait for the next update. Their solution's did not work for me.
