I have been having an ongoing problem with Firefox when I log into my bank's website. When I try to view a statement, I see a page full of HTML code. Above the HTML page there is an up arrow and a blue button with the option to log into my Google Account. The up arrow opens up another page of the same HTML code. For a while this only happened when I used Ameriprise. Now the same problem occurs on Schwab and Wells Fargo. The problem does not occur on Chrome, but I use Firefox 98% of the time and prefer to fix this on my primary browser. I am running Windows 7 (if that matters). My OS and browsers are up to date. In Firefox I just tried changing the application settings for PDF - before they were set to "default", now they are set to open in Acrobat X Pro. The problem still exists. I do NOT want to be logged into my Google Account when accessing my online banking for fear of what data is being captured.
At some point I will be upgrading my Windows, but for now I am hoping a setting or proven safe plug-in will solve this.
Thanks for your help. Let me know if you need any additional info.
P.S. As I type this I am going to change the default to open in Acrobat Reader DC, after I make sure it is up to date. Maybe my X Pro is so old it is missing some security feature that allows it to open the PDF?
Also, not sure if this is related, but on some sites when I go to download a PDF I get a long random string of alphanumeric characters with no extension. If I go to Downloads in Explorer, I can name the file whatever I want with a .pdf and it opens fine. Not sure if this is related. Would be great to solve this too.
UPDATE: I confirmed Acrobat DC was up to date. Then I flushed my browser cache and rebooted computer. When I tried to view a statement the same error occured. I am attaching a screen shot to show what I see.
