Hi :)
That is downright weird.

My ex-boss often used to have troubles using Adobe Pdf-reader to open Pdfs
he'd downloaded with Internet Explorer or that were in his Outlook emails.
Switching either variable - such as still using Adobe Pdf reader but
downloading the file using Firefox, or Chrome worked fine - or the other
way around, taking the already downloaded file and using any other Pdf
Reader (such as Foxit) also worked.  He just couldn't seem to understand
that using stuff that may have been reasonably good a few decades ago is
not necessarily good now (although IE was never good imo).  It's quite
normal to have incompatibility issues when using even just 1 proprietary
product but trying to get 2 to co-operate with each other is not always
easy.  Each one wants to be the dominant program on your system and doesn't
like to share = that's the ethos.

It is unusual to have that sort of problem with OpenSource things because
each thing needs to work smoothly with a wide variety of other tools and
gets it's own major advantages by avoiding being monolithic.

Yes, I did try renaming the user-profile, to no effect.

However, last night I downloaded the latest version of Firefox (60.0.2)
and the problem seems to have gone away. I have not yet tried extensive
testing, but in about 8 tries have not yet gotten a failure. This one
baffles me.

Here is another "waggle the wires" suggestion...

Have you tried renaming the user-profile?

I've not seen it suggested or mentioned earlier in this thread but I could
easily have missed it.
