    I want to view pdf in Firefox without actually downloading it, just like how windows does it, simple right?

    But FF won't let me do it.

    I've tried the add-on: PDF Viewer. The quality is of some pdf's are so bad.

    So, I've stopped trying, hope someone could point to me the right one.

    There's an "Adobe Acrobat" addon which I think is the official Adobe PDF plugin for Firefox.

    If you really want that feature, use Chrome.

    I'm not sure this is possible anymore on Firefox. I remember back when firefox 4 came out, the open pdf extension that was widely used stopped working. Ever since then, pdf opening on firefox was wishy washy, which is why i stopped using it and switched to chrome+safari.
