  • Bug File Associations Problem on Linux

    On some Linux distributions, specifically Ubuntu and Manjaro, many file types get associated with Foxit Reader, without having anything to do with PDF. For example, mp3 files get associated with Foxit, and a Foxit Reader menu item appears in the Open With menu for mp3 files and many other file types. I think this is a problem that should be resolved since it is a bit annoying. Firefox tries to open any downloaded file, pdf or not, with Foxit Reader.

        I use Manjaro Linux 17.0.1 and Foxit Reader 2.3.1. I also used Ubuntu 16.04.2 before switching to Manjaro.
