    Has anybody figured out a way to get PDFs to open within safari INSTEAD of downloading them to the Downloads folder. I have one site in particular that uses a frame to show me matches in the various PDFs. But now, I am forced to download each one and view them separately in Preview, losing the functionality I once enjoyed.

    I want to stay away from Acrobat, but unless I can get this fixed, I may have to switch back.

    Thanks.

    i think chrome can view it online and safari does it as well as i remembered. and 100% sure that firefox does not support unless there will be a plugin release to support it...

    I used to also have the ability to view inline PDFs in Safari, but at some point they began to only download.

    In Safari 5.1.1 the PDF files still open in Safari, in a new tab for me.
    I went to http://samplepdf.com/sample.pdf and it opened as it should, no need to download.
