PDF troubles continued Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Still encountering sites that cannot open PDFs correctly or at all in FF with this extension, but can open no problem in Chrome (which I would rather not use). Since others are not seeing what I am, the two of the sites I use regularly that I am having trouble with are Xcel Energy (I have to view my online bill in PDF) where you cannot right-click on the link to the bill to download the PDF, you can only open it directly. JS displays all of the fonts incorrectly. And if I download from there, the fonts stay messed up. And Quicken, where it would even let me open the PDFs at all in FF (but I could in Chrome again).
Here is an example to share. Open this in Windows, Chrome on the Mac or Google Docs, and you see the real PDF. Open with JS extension and it is just wrong in many ways.
Before I moved to FF12, I was happy with a third-party extension for v3. I want real PDFs in the browser again and not this rendering that doesn't work most of the time.
Can you open a ticket on https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Firefox&component=PDF%20Viewer .
I tested the above pdf with mac osx and windows and it seems to be rendered correctly except for a barely noticeable transparency issue.

Yes, it sort of opens PDFs in the browser, but the format is often wrong and it is constantly reloading when you scroll through the pages since it doesn't download a file (like on a PC). And you cannot download the actual PDF unless you turn it off. The option to download in the extension gives you the lousy js version instead of the real PDF file. Why can't Firefox open a PDF on a Mac like it can on a PC and like Chrome can on a Mac?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.175.1-signed.1-signed).
