    Can't open documents in Preview
    I have a new recurring problem of not being able to open documents in Preview when using Firefox. It works fine with Safari.

    I noticed it a few weeks ago when trying to print a label from the USPS and thought it was them, but now I cannot open bank statements.

    This is a new problem. I previously would click on the file to open and there it was. Now what happens is the window flashes on the screen but then disappears. I go to applications and find it in there but when I try to open it it tells me I did not select an application.

    I tried it again and this time I told it to open in Adobe Reader and that worked fine but I prefer Preview and I don't know why it is not working.

    I am using 10.5.8 and Firefox 8.0.1. I'd like to keep using Firefox.

    Lots of people complain about
    Firefox on Macs. Use Safari or Chrome, they both work well for me.

    I prefer to use Firefox. Using Safari or Chrome (which I had problems with when I tried to switch) does not solve this problem.
