Firefox opens PDF’s files with GIMP

One annoying issue that I had for some time, was that after downloading a PDF file, double clicking on the filename in the FireFox Downloads window, open up GIMP, instead of Acrobat or Okular…

To solve the issue:

1) Get root: sudo -s
2) Goto /usr/share/applications
3) Edit the mimeinfo.cache file
4) Search for pdf
5) Find a line named something like: application/pdf
6) Remove the gimp.desktop from the line, keeping the other applications, or not
7) Save
8) Restart firefox
10) Problem solved
