another alternative is the google docs reader, which still works in 64 bit.
needless to say, i loved this plugin in FF3
here comes the enlightenment:
both, Schubert plugin and this firefox pdf plugin (link by dbrnz) will only work with FF running in 32 bit mode on Mac OS X. Go to Finder, select Firefox, open the "Information" window and switch to 32 bit.
The link given by 'dbrnz' below is working perfectly for me with Firefox 4.01 and Mac OS 10.6. All PDFs open right up.
Schubert works fine with FF 4.0.1 on Mac Intel OSX 10.5.8 - just tried it
That is the last straw. Now I can't load web site that have pdf files that I need. SAFRI & CHROME are a snap. Now FF just shot themselves in the head withthis new release to 4.0.1 Why do a release when millions need to be able to get pdf files from the web? Its like they do care. So Long FF ..screw you. Hello Safri.
@dbrnz http://firefox-mac-pdf.s3.amazonaws.com/fx-quartz-pdf-1.2.0.xpi works in FF 4!
Thank you so much!!!!!!!
The version at http://firefox-mac-pdf.s3.amazonaws.com/fx-quartz-pdf-1.2.0.xpi works in FF 4!
Please- could you let us know if an update to this plug in is being worked on to make it compatible with Firefox 4 ? I am assuming so and will be patient but sure would be nice to know !!!
After years of die-hard FF loyalty, I've had to switch to Chrome because of the inability to view PDFs in the browser. I really don't get it -- who cares about HTML5 when you can't even view a PDF?
I agree, FF4 is pointless without this plugin; it is now a substandard browser. I don't see why Mozilla cant undertake updating this and include it with the update.
Can you make this compatible for Firefox 4 Pretty Please!
FIREFOX 4 is an unusable substitute for a real browser, If I cannot print the PDF from my financial institution, why the F did you encourage me to upgrade? NOW I'll have to go back to version 3.
how about for firefox 4 mac os x, need your help to make pdf plugin
Please, make it compatible for Firefox 4.... :-(
What good is Firefox 4 if this doesn't work in it? It should be built in by now...
Tried FF4. Abandoned it due to inability to run this add-on. I refuse to use Firefox without this capability. Mozilla guys, don't you get it? Build this PDF viewer into the browser.
I use FF4. I would really like the plugin back. Can use 32 bit solution do to other program requirements.
I absolutely loved this plugin, and really miss it! I'd definitely pledge to a Kickstarter project to re-write it to work with FF4.
As already said by others, you can make it work in FF4 in 32 bit mode. But looks like the whole plugin design can´t be made to work in 64 bits, related to the dissappearance of Carbon64. That means: a full update can´t happen. If anything it would be more of a full redesign.
Even looks like the programmer(s) have given up giving any information. Would be useful if they wrote something in the description or site so we know what to do or not.

since so many of us would be willing to $upport a FF4 version, sam, you could consider raising funds in this way http://www.kickstarter.com/start
this one http://code.google.com/p/firefox-mac-pdf/issues/detail?id=182colspec=ID%20Type%20Status%20Priority%20Stars%20Owner%20Summary works for me!!! thanks a lot
The FF4 suggestion offered by hvico involves running FF in 32-bit mode. Does anyone know if we have a 64-bit solution coming? And if so, how far off it might be?

You can tell how good this add-on is by the fact that its users are offering money to the developers for a FF4 upgrade. This add-on just works
This is an amazing PDF plugin for Firefox 3.6. Please update for Firefox 4. We need your help Sam!! Nothing else compared to your pdf plugin. I would also send money!!
