downloaded pdf-documents are saved as pdf.html instead of simply pdf and that means that I can read the document only online. I noticed that the Data menu of Ubuntu 12.04 only offers the alternative to save the page instead of the alternative save a copy - that is what I was used to. Is that the problem of the version or settings of Firefox???

  • I don't use FF, but in the mean time you should be able to save the file without the .html extension, or rename the file after download removing the .html extension...hopefully some learned FF user can answer the question about FF

  • @pfeiffep no, removing the extension in this case doesn’t solve the problem. The file is really an HTML one.

  • Are there some accessible links (no login or password) that illustrate this problem?

In Firefox (I'm using the version 19), you should have some kind of PDF reader. Instead of right-clicking and clicking Save as, just click the Download button of that PDF reader.
