Recently, every time I try to download a PDF file - such as an attachment in gmail - it is automatically downloaded to my downloads folder and opens in my PDF viewer (Adobe Acrobat), instead of showing me the save file dialog as expected.

I assume it is an integration feature somewhere but no idea if it's a setting in Chrome, or Acrobat. Where can I disable this?

Probably it`s settings regarding default behavior of particular file type. That is not in Chrome or Acrobat, try to explore settings of PC. Not shore where is that in MacOS. Maybe in "extensions".
