Tip #257

Disable the internal PDF viewer, if you prefer to use different PDF software.

It’s convenient to open PDF files from web pages in a browser tab to take a quick look. If you want to use more advanced features to edit and manage PDFs you can also use your computer’s default PDF software.

To prefer dedicated PDF software when opening PDF files:

  1. Go to Settings > Web Pages > Plugins.
  2. Uncheck the box for Enable Internal PDF Viewer.

When the setting is disabled and you’re trying to view a PDF file, a dialog to save or open it will be displayed first.
