On my Mac, whenever I try to open a photo or document attachment in Gmail or a document on any web page in FF, it pops another tab, but then, instead of using Preview like the FF Preferences are set, the tab blackens and presents a dialog saying,"Whoops! There was a problem displaying this image." It suggests third-party apps like Pixlr Editor, Pixlr Express or PicMonkey, or Download, or shows a rectangular button with the upper half of a Google logo and saying, "Connect more apps..." and that takes me to a multi-page listing of third-party apps. I don't have any Pixlr add-ons or extensions. Nevertheless, is some malware causing this? How do I get back to getting FF to open .PDFs and .jpg and.jpeg, etc. in that tab or in Preview, instead of this goofy dialog?

Any change if you restart in Safe Mode?
