- by Firefox user 15193828, 4 maande geledeRated 5 out of 5yes! gets the job done
some websites send certain files with an "attachment" header and firefox shows a popup-dialog to "open with X or save file", even for files that firefox could display, like *.htm or *.jpg or *.pdf or *.mp3
here is a test page:
that behavior is desired in some cases, with large files or with actual "download links", but mostly its annoying and we just want to see the file ....
.... and find this addon to silently "rewrite" the disposition header. no more popup, just shut up and show me your bits!

- by Jens Bannmann, 'n jaar geledeRated 5 out of 5Works great in Firefox 63.0.3!
I only wish I could selectively enable/disable it via a toolbar button and/or a configurable whitelist and blacklist of host names. Workaround: go to about:addons and disable/enable the extension, this takes effect immediately.
- by Artem S. Tashkinov, 'n jaar geledeRated 4 out of 5Works great however it would be great if it had a text field where I could enter the websites I don't want to be mangled by this add-on.
One site, one line.
Subdomains will have to be matched too, e.g.
domain.com should also match one.domain.com and two.domain.com
A "Save" button would be nice, so that Firefox wouldn't save the contents of this field on every key press.
- by Firefox user 12646031, 2 jaar geledeRated 3 out of 5I have a problem to download attachments on Gmail. When I click on individual download arrow nothing happens. Only works if I click on all files download arrow. Can you fix it? Thanks a lot!

EDIT to respond to author's reply: I think I debugged it! In my particular case the server sends a weird header:
Content-Disposition: inline; filename=example.jpg
Firefox interprets it as attachment disposition. Your extension should probably handle this case too.
Developer responseposted 2 jaar geledeIn Firefox with WebExtensions works fine. Old FF like ESR - version 1.0 only.
Download book as TXT. When extension disabled (file download):
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="Two_Worlds-Antoinette_Moses.txt"
When extension enabled (opened directly in browser):
Content-Disposition: inline; filename="Two_Worlds-Antoinette_Moses.txt"
- by pingpong, 6 jaar geledeRated 5 out of 5Thanks for this, since the original add-on seems to be abandonware.
If you have issues with some PDF's refusing to display inline, then check out https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/always-preview/
