The reason I asked you which specific stage of the procedure does not work is because such generic statements like above don't tell us much about what doesn't work. I can't reproduce the problem on my installation so I really have no idea what is exactly broken on your end.

Again, I have no idea what 'flag' you are talking about since saving an attachment doesn't involve copying & pasting any flags. I don't really know what you are doing and what is happening on your computer without more specific descriptions of the problem or screenshots.

I too am having this issue. A blank page comes up with a URL of "about:blank". Under preferences/helper applications/Portable Document Format I have tried both checking Always Ask, Adobe Acrobat Reader and Preview (app) - all the same outcome. Thanks for any help - tried to install a plugin previously suggested but wont work with my Seamonkey version 2.33.1.

Scroll down this page mozilla/pdf.js · GitHub and try the Development Version under Browser Extensions Firefox.

@murman, does your issue deal with a pdf attachment in an email?

Thanks WLS, I'll try that. Therube: no - I am referring to web browser pdf links - ie: click on "sample plan" at https://www.westernturfreplacement.com/ ... uidelines/ and I get a blank page with a url of: about:blank
Thanks!

WLS - That worked! Thanks so much - I just wonder why this functionality is not a staple of the browser, but I'm not complaining :)
