Sometimes, when I select a link to a PDF file, the file appears within the SeaMonkey window, appearently using the nppdf32.dll plugin. Other times, the Download Manager is launched; and the file is eventually displayed within a separate Adobe Reader window.

Why does this lack of consistency occur?

It depends from the reported MIME type and or the Content-Disposition header, the least. If the reported MIME type is not appropriate SeaMonkey may fail to identify the response as PDF therefore allowing you only to download it. If the Content-Disposition header specifies value of 'attachment' (w/o the quotes) SeaMonkey will pop a download dialog no matter of the content type and whether there is plug-in registered to handle it inside the browser.

Is there a way to force "download dialog" for *ALL* PDF links?
