Getting iceweasel to display rather than automatically download PDFs


When I upgraded from debian lenny to squeeze, my iceweasel browser was upgraded at the same time (3.5.15), and I'm having difficulty getting it to function as it used to.

When I visit sites that link to PDF files, they download automatically, when what I want is for the PDF to be displayed by the browser. I have Applications for PDF set to Always Ask.

I have PDF Download as an extension, and under its Preferences I have Open PDF as default action, using the xpdf utility on the host, opened in same tab, caught by name. I do not have a PDF plugin. Is the PDF Download extension forcing a download rather than display of the PDF in the browser?

If you disable the PDF Download extension in the addons menu you can test that.
