It seemed to be integral to the eBay site, as though they had implemented its purposes directly, as I hadn't installed any plugin or add-on into Firefox for that specific purpose, and it didn't look like any usual add-on/plugin I've seen for Firefox if that's what you meant - so I don't know if that makes any difference?
I did later that day get an email from eBay with an attachment - the PDF label attached to it, and it's not like I can't "fire-up" my Windows system to do what was needed. I just don't like Windows, and if I can avoid it I prefer not to switch it on, but on occasions I suppose there is little alternative.
I seem to remember getting a download option like this before that wasn't handled as Firefox handled it, and generated the URL using bad/illegal format or missing URL
on that occasion as well.
I've rebooted my system in the meantime, so I can't do a check using Snoopium for this issue now, but I'll try to remember for any future next occasion that this issue arises.
I did do a few screengrabs of the PDF viewer that was used by eBay, but I don't suppose that's very (at all) helpful.
