Since the update of FF to version 34 I have a bug with opening .pdf files. It doesn't always happen, but for some .pdf files it opens a new tab to display the file (as it always does), then opens another new tab, and another etc. - I end up with dozens of new tabs, each saying 'opening'. The only thing I can do then is to shut FF down completely, then after a few seconds it re-starts itself and comes up with a message saying it failed to open whatever the temp file for the .pdf was named as it doesn't exist in the folder it's looking in. If I ignore the message and go back to using FF as normal it's fine until I try to access a .pdf file, then it's a lottery as to whether the bug kicks in or not. Some of the links to the .pdf documents I want to see are fairly old (linked from old forum pages) but if they don't exist anymore it should just come up with 'file not found', not go mad with the tabs. Anyone else seen this? or know how to fix it?
I'm using win XP service pack 3, Adobe reader version 11.0.08, plugins all seem to be 11.0.07.79
