    I either get a blank page or if it works the text is too small and you can't zoom or you can't change pages. Anything I can do besides having to open safari?

    Disable the extensions that might be causing your problems.

    When I first got my MBP PDF's worked fine in Firefox, but sense one of the updates I am also experiencing the same problem. I contacted Firefox, and looked everywhere for a solution but to no avail. I finally gave up and just have it open Preview to display the document. Then have Hasel delete the file after a couple days unless I move it to my documents folder.

    Not really a solution to your problem, but it works for me.

    I had a similar problem with PDF and this fixed my problem.

    Go to Firefox preferences; Manage Add-Ons; Disable Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plugin

    Mine is already disabled, and now whenever I click on a PDF, I have to save it to the hard drive before I can view it. I want to be able to just have it automatically load in the browser.
