Unable to add info in Adobe editable form in Firefox

Unable to add information in to an Adobe editable form in Firefox Browser. Let me tell you what are the steps I had tried to come to an perfect solution of this issues.

I tried reinstalling Firefox browser after deleting Mozilla Firefox folder from program files and AppData. which removes all settings and Add-ons from Firefox and install a fresh Firefox Browser. Which didn’t help resolving this issue.

Downloaded and reinstalled Acrobat Reader from this url – https://get.adobe.com/reader/ . still it didn’t help.

I could see the setting in Firefox – Setting – Option – Applications

Portable Document Format is set to “Use Acrobat reader DC default”.

and here the pdf is getting downloaded to the hard disk where as I need to enter data to the editable pdf form inside Firefox Browser.

After much google I could get to know that “The 64-bit version of Firefox does not recognize or support the Adobe Reader browser plugin; you can use the built-in PDF Viewer instead.”
