Doesn't work in Fx safe mode. It works fine in MS Edge.

Maybe because

Rather then

How did you find out it is Content-Type application/octet-stream?

Ctrl+Shift+K -> Network
(And I'll note, I'm am not good at this stuff at all, so could very well be wrong.)

I notice that when I click on the pdf link it shows up in my download folder. If I click on a link like this one https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw4.pdf it displays fine and the file is not in my download folder. Here is part of the HTML on MS Edge:

<embed width="100%" height="100%" src="http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Memory/mb_memory_z370-aorus-gaming-7.pdf" type="application/pdf" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;overflow:hidden;display:block;">

Perhaps Fx doesn't support pdfs of this type?

Is there any way to force all pdfs to open in Firefox?

You have to associate .pdf with Fx in Default Programs in Windows.

Already have but the PDFs that are coded in the website to open externally just go into a download loop.
