Im not sure this will work since i dont do much pdf stuff.
Is it possible to save the pdf,,from there right click on it,click use other application,from there you should see a list of applications,If its not in there,you can add the command and click the use as default application.
Im thinking once you do this,,Your browsers will open it the way youd like.
^ This works for opening files within a file browser, but not, for example, for opening a recently downloaded file in Iceweasel's download window. I'm also not certain whether this works in XFCE; I've only tried it in Openbox.
I have just tried it and here on Alpha2 it works as it should. Maybe it is not associated right in Iceweasel itself? In this case it might help to delete mimetypes.rdf in your .mozilla/firefox folder, if I am not mistaken.
Edit: I see, in midori it is the same problem for you... Here it does work....
fgrep pdf /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache $HOME/.local/share/applications/defaults.list
In defaults.list you should find application/pdf=evince.desktop

@pvsage - maybe you can tell Iceweasel just to open files using Thunar, this will instead cause the default application to launch.
Thanks to all of you, machinebacon and anonymous, as well as pvsage and charlie01.
I wonder what caused the change of the default PDF app in the first place. But never mind that, marking this thread SOLVED.
