Firefox and pdf

When I open a pdf file with firefox, it downloads it to my Desktop straight away without asking if i want to open it. (The default is to open with evince) I seem to remember that I once clicked something which has turned the behaviour to this. How do I revert to the default?

In the Edit->Preferences->Downloads menu, click the "View and Edit Actions" button. There, you can change how Firefox handles any file type.
