    Enable PDF's in the QuickTime plug-in's MIME settings. You may also download and install Adobe Reader.

    Adobe Reader will not open the PDF in the Firefox window anymore.

    Quicktime's PDF support is horribly lacking.

    There's the PDF Browser Plugin; but that won't work on Intel Macs unless you run Firefox in Rosetta mode. But if you've got a PPC Mac it works great.
