I am using a module in CMSMS called "Uploads". It allows the site owner to echo lists of PDF files on a web page.
Problem is that when clicking to open a PDF (even using target_blank) the PDF firsts downloads before opening.

Is there anyway to use htacess to force the PDF in the browser window?
It looks like there may be php code in the Uploads module that is modifying the headers and forcing PDFs to download.
Thanks in advance.
