Download error, Change file association.

I’ve got this error message when I downloaded PDF from the website. Firefox says that PDF file could not be opened because of file association that does not exist. Changing the file association is recommended. What should I do with the file association?

I have also tested if it works in IE. No problem with IE. The process proceeded without any appearance of the error message. I think, it is a sole problem of Firefox.

C:DOCUME~1RickLOCALS~1TempRoom_Air_Conditioners.pdf could not be opened, because the

associated helper application does not exist. Change the association in your preferences.

Access to Firefox menu and click the option, and select the application tab like the picture below,

the action with Foxit reader plugin for Mozilla

On my computer, I change the action with Foxit reader plugin for Mozilla, maybe you already have the reader because you are telling the IE work correctly when opening PDF documents, so I think your PC has corrupted plugin for Mozilla, why you don't try to re-install the reader, so you get the new plug in installed.

Hi dear,

Mozilla Firefox applications are storing the file type details. Sometimes, when the file types are changed or reinstalled, then the details of the file association will be stored in a different location where it was stored previously.
 
When you try to download that file type documents, it will give this error message because the file you are searching is not in the same location where it was. Instead, it is having a different file.
 
You can fix this problem by using methods below:
 
For Firefox 3
 
Go to Tools. Select Options. Finally, select applications and fix the problem.
 
For Firefox 2
 
Go to Tools. Select Options. Then select Content. Finally, Select Manage. There, your problem is fixed.
