Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Until recently, I could open pdf files automatically from within firefox
using evince. (I had "PDF documents" set up to use "Document Viewer" in
Preferences->Applications. However, this has inexplicably changed in the
last few days and now, if I try to open a PDF, it saves it instead.
Having set PDF documents to "always ask" in preferences->applications,
when I click on a link to a pdf file, I am only offered the options to
"save" or "cancel".

My release is hardy and my evince version is  2.22.2-0ubuntu.
