tweaked to work with FF 17, but fails on 18 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I had a tweaked version of the plugin which worked with FF up to version 17.x, but when I upgraded to 18 today, it immediately crashes FF. Reverted to the (worse) Schubert-IT plugin.

PDF display in FF on a Mac is an old and important problem, but still not solved :-(

PDF PLugin.js for Firefox. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

although you can look at PDF that's it. Has no support for button For example I use a Majority PDF's because they look better than anything html. I uses buttons you click to return home. They don't works, Plus I want the ability to fillout forms online and send them For fillout doesn't work. No support for SEaMonkey

Works, period. Mac OS X 10.7, Firefox Nightly Build 14.0a1

Necessary Add-On, but then you upgrade Firefox Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've had this add-on for a while now, and it's been wonderful on my Mac. But, I recently upgraded to the new Firefox, Firefox 10, and it's no longer compatible. Problem! I'm a college student and now can't open the imbedded PDF files my professors like so much. When will this be compatible with the new Firefox? Until it's compatible, hopefully I'll be able to go back to the old Firefox...

Crucial addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use Mac OS X 10.5.8 my FF 8.0.1 is 32 bit mode .
The same extension discussed below (Nov 1). i just modified it to work with FF 4 till 10 (in 32 bit mode)
Hassle free - Direct download of this extension :

Just open the Zip file and install the Extension
("install add-on from file" in options of add-ons window in FF)

Script to fetch for FIrefox 7 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There's a script to get it and modify it to work with Firefox, but you need to follow instructions at the end of the script to make FIreFox run in 32 bit mode and to install the plugin from a file.

Wish it were available for Firefox 7! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'd love to give this extension a five star rating, because it has worked great over the years. Now I'm using Firefox 7 in full 64-bit mode and I can't use this extension any longer. I hope that the developer community will find time to update this to work with 64-bit Firefox 7. I would change my rating to five stars for that.

PS: Yes, I know that there are ways to make this extension work with Firefox 7, but *only* if Firefox is run in 32-bit mode. I need to keep Firefox in 64-bit mode for compatibility with other extensions and applications.

Another way to enable in 7.0.1 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I did not have any luck with kimpton's procedure (10.5.8, already 32-bit/FF 7.01), but this did work for me -
(I had to do the entire procedure described in the hint)

works but have to tinker Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I always use this and i have scripts which can set mac apps to 32 bit by default. This is the easiest way for you to get it working in 7.*

1. Download it. Do it in Safari and right click save and download the xpi.

2. Rename the xpi to end in .zip

3. Unzip the file by double clicking

4. Go inside the unzipped file and locate the Install.rdf

5. Open Instaff.rdf in Text Edit and change the Max version to 7.*.* and save it.

6. Copy the folder and put it here (this is the global extensions place meaning whom ever logs in will get this installed

/Library/Application Support/Mozilla/Extensions/{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}/

7. Set Fire Fox to 32 bit by doing Get Info on the Firefox application and tick the box open in 32-bit.

8. Open Firefox and try it out

Mozilla please pay attention for these instructions and put them on the side of this add on page. Its getting annoying now posting these instructions when all i want to do is help people out and not get over looked under the pile of ratings!

Kara, Mozilla didn't make this add-on, so they're not responsible for keeping it updated.

Mozilla update version numbers Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Please Mozilla, UPDATE your version numbers for important plugins! It is a horror to determine always antique descriptions and links. PDF Plugin is common.

Version 1.2.0 still working fine for me with FF 5.01 and OSX 10.6.8 and running in 64bit.

Wrong advice: it works on PPC. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This addon works for me. Early indications are that it has a useful set of options.

The advice on (Opening PDF files within Firefox) seems to be wrong. "Firefox PDF Plugin extension" works for me on a PPC with OS 10.4.11 and Firefox 3.6.19. The Schubert plugin, however, doesn't work for me at all, does not appear in Firefox's plugin list, and is not available as an option under Firefox-->Preferences-->Applications for .pdf files.

only for Mac OS X, and Firefox 3.6 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a plugin for Mac, and it works perfectly with Firefox 3.6. Its search feature and the zoom with two fingers on the track pad are very useful.

Unfortunately it has not been ported to Firefox 4 or 5, and I wonder if there is any intention to do it. is a possible alternative, but it lacks the search capability of the present plugin... I am considering returning to Firefox 3.6 to continue to use this precious plugin.

Sorry for being lame but I went to schubert site, downloaded the 2.4.1 version dmg and then went through installation but this add on is not listed in my add ons and definitely cannot open the pdf's in firefox. What did I do wrong?

Moving on Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I got tired of waiting for an update for FF 5.0. I found this other plug in that works perfectly (!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sehr praktisches Plugin. UND: es funktioniert, wenn man in den 32 Bit Modus umschaltet mit Firefox 4! Mit Firefox 5 funktioniert es auch, wenn man zusätzlich in Macintosh HD/Users/"Name"/Library/Application Support/Firefox/ Profiles/your_profile/extensions/" mit TextEdit öffnet und "<em:maxVersion>4.0.*" ändert in "<em:maxVersion>5.0.*". Noch praktischer wäre es natürlich, wenn diese Änderungen nicht nötig werden, aber die nehme ich gerne in Kauf, wenn ich dafür die PDFs nicht mehr extern öffnen und anschauen muss.
