    This is what I did:

    Opened up Firefix for Android.

    Navigated to this forum post:

    Powering 5 servo motors.

    Clicked on the png link shown on that post:

    servo power.png

    A dialog box displayed asking for which app to open it with. (of course now I can never get back to that dialog box so as to even post a screenshot).

    I clicked on Gallery and then clicked on Always.

    Then a little message pops up of "unable to find item". Here is a screenshot:

    How to undo setting for Always open with on a PNG link?-screenshot_2015-06-23-21-09-59.jpg

    Why would it do that? Why wouldn't it just download the file or just display the file directly in the browser?

    Beyond that: How do I undo that setting of always choosing the Gallery app for that link?

    To increase my confusion, the URL of that link shows as follows:

    http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?ac...;attach=119633

    So something on that link is generating a downloadable something or other, that a Firefox web browser is interpreting as a PNG file to download.

    Thanks!

    Settings, applications, default applications, clear defaults for whatever app you need

    I did just that and cleared the Firefox defaults. I retried the link from within Firefox and it still gave me the message of unable to find item.

    Shouldn't you be clearing defaults for the gallery app and not Firefox?

    Muzzy is right. You should clear defaults for the app that you choose in that pop up menu (gallery).

    Sure. however, below is what I see on my phone:

    The Gallery app is not listed there. Perhaps the settings for it are managed under some other menu?
