Printing attachments from Yahoo mail

Johanse1 used Ask the Experts™
When clicking on attachments to Yahoo mail, I need to choose downloading to computer - in order to have the possibility of printing the attachment only. After that I can choose either to save the attachment or to just open the document. Odt and xlxs-documents are no problem, but the problem is pdf-documents, which I receive much more often. After choosing a pdf for downloading to computer, I do not get the alternatives to save or open (as with odt and xlxs), it goes straight to the downloading process and the only thing I can choose is where to save it. And later of course I can make a printout. But it should not be as complicated as that.
Normally, I use Mozilla Firefox. (tested it with Edge, and it was better, but not perfect.) I use Windows10, and the default pdf reader is Adobe.
It this a Firefox problem? or a Yahoo problem? Or is it me?

Mozilla Firefox users

By default, Firefox opens PDF files in the Firefox browser window. To disable this and have PDF files open in your PDF reader program (Adobe Reader or other), follow the steps below.
Tip: If you have a PDF reader other than Adobe Reader installed on your computer, the steps below will still apply, but your PDF reader program name should be listed instead of "Adobe Reader" or "Adobe Acrobat".
Open Mozilla Firefox
Click the Firefox menu Firefox Menu button button and select Options. Or you can select Tools in the Firefox menu bar and select Options If you do not see the menu bar, press the Alt key.
Within the Options window, click Applications
Select the Content type you want to adjust. For example, if you want to change how a PDF file opens in Firefox, select Adobe Acrobat Document.
In the Action section, change the action for how you want to open the file. If you want to download the PDF files instead of opening them, select Save file. If you want the PDF to open in Adobe Reader instead of in the Firefox browser window, select Use Adobe Reader.
To enable the ability for Firefox to open and display PDF files in the Firefox browser window, follow the steps above and in step 5, select Use Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox) instead.
