If you are using the Firefox browser to view church bulletins on the Incarnation website, the links for bulletins may look like they are not working. Nothing seems to happen.
Here’s What’s Wrong
Documents such as our church bulletins are often in .pdf files (Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format). This format is nearly universal (almost all computers have the Adobe Reader installed on them already) and shows an exact rendering of the original document, which makes it easier to read.
Firefox, by default, saves .pdfs to your downloads folder. This is safer than just opening the .pdf directly, because some .pdfs contain malware. However, it makes viewing safe .pdfs harder and less intuitive.
There are two ways you can deal with the problem:
- Go to the list of downloads and open it there.
- Change Firefox’s settings.
