    Hi,
    So I would like to have my files open automatically once there downloaded, be it .pdf, .ppt or .doc.

    Is there some setting that i need to change of Firefox (though I have looked) to make this happen

    Thanks for your time

    Try the settings in Firefox > Preferences > Applications tab

    Just be careful what you set to open automatically. It's as much a security feature as a convenience one.

    I echo scienide09 concerns with the security of setting files to automatically open once downloaded.
