Carls Tip: PDFs have changed, how do I change it back?

Since the latest update to Mozilla’s Firefox, users will notice when they produce a PDF, the PDF now displays different to before. This is because it is no longer using the Adobe Reader plugin, but is now using Firefox’s built in PDF preview (like Chrome does).
You can set this back to using Adobe Reader plugin, by clicking on the Firefox tab in the top left, select Options, and then Options again.

Select the Applications tab at the top. Under the column labelled ‘Content Type’ select Portable Document Format (PDF), to the right, select the Use Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox) option, and select OK.

Now when you produce a PDF (Invoices, Manifests, Reports etc), they will display in Adobe Reader like they did before the update.

 Any Questions on this, or if you have any other suggestions for a 'Carl Tip' that other people would find useful, drop me a line on support.
