How do I read my PDF invoice in Firefox?

Sometimes when trying to view a PDF in Firefox it will try to download it, or show a blank white screen instead.

You can set Firefox to preview a PDF in the browser in order to fix this issue:

  1. Open the Firefox Options window
    • Select the Firefox menu at the top right of your browser, then choose Options

    • Alternatively paste about:preferences into the navigation bar
  2. Under the General tab, scroll to the Applications panel
  3. Locate Portable Document Format (PDF) on the list of file types
  4. Change the Action to Preview In Firefox

  5. Close the Options browser tab. 

PDFs will now automatically display within your Firefox browser. If you need to save the PDF, right click anywhere on a page of the PDF and click Save Page As.
