PDFs downloaded are saved as JSON


#1

Hi!

I downloaded Atom last night. When I today downloaded a pdf through safari it was saved as a JSON file. Like this: “title.pdf.json”. How can I stop this?

Thank you! :smiley:

If you’re having an issue with Safari, you should ask on Apple forums. In the mean time, I suggest trying out Chrome or Firefox.

Since the problem acurred after installing atom and the PDF.json files has a atom icon on them I figured there was something I could fix in/with atom. Other suggestions are also welcome. And yes thanks, I will make a post on apple forums.

Not at all. What happened is that Atom is the program that your system associates with .json files. It has absolutely no say in what your browser is doing.
