    How to turn off adobe reader plugin in Firefox?

    Hi all

    I'm using Firefox 3 on Ubuntu Hardy. I want to have Adobe Reader installed on my system, because occasionally I find it useful. However I don't want Firefox to use the Adobe Reader plugin for displaying PDFs -- I want them to open in an external Evince window instead.

    What do I need to do to make this happen?

    Cheers
    JP

    You should be able to do that by going to Tools>Add-ons and then selecting the required plugin and then pressing Disable.
    Think carefully before executing commands containing "rm", especially "sudo rm -rf ", if you require more information concerning this matter, read this.
    I am an experimenter, give me the most stable OS and I can make it unstable in a few hours.
