how to open ASPX file in Adobe Acrobat Reader

Hi,
 
 In Firefox browser, when I click the following link to open PDF document:
https://docu.DomainName.com/portal/document.aspx?JobNumber=XXX
 It opens PDF document inside Firefox. But  I like to be able to open this document in Adobe Acrobat Reader.
 I know I can save the aspx document as PDF on the C drive, double-click that PDF document to launch Adobe Acrobat Reader, but that is two-step process.
 So far, I have set associated PDF with Adobe Acrobat Reader and went into Firefox Tools/Add-ins/Plugins/ and changed Adobe Acrobat to "Always Active", but to no avail.

  Can you help?

Thanks.

In Firefox, I think you will need to do 2 things to get files to open in Adobe Reader.

1.  In Add-ons Manager (about:addons), select the PDF add on & change it to "never activate."
2.  Then, in Applications (about:preferences#applications), set "Portable Document Format (PDF)" files to "always open"

Adobe Reader Preferences1.  In Add-ons Manager (about:addons), select the PDF add on & change it to "never activate." ---> I did that.
2.  Then, in Applications (about:preferences#applications), set PDF or ASPX files to "always open" --> If you are referring to Adobe Acrobat Reader, I don't see "Applications" under the Category section.

I'm referring to Applications in Firefox.

Either, type this in the address bar:  about:preferences#applications
Or, click on the menu button > options > applications.
Then, scroll down to "Portable Document Format" to set the behavior for that file type.

Sorry, I misstated that a bit. I should have said set that option to "Use Adobe" (Acrobat on my PC at work, not Reader):
