    Is there any way to view PDF files within Firefox on an Intel Mac?

    I have recently switched and I hate the fact that it alwasy downloads the file and then opens it up in a seperate program (preview or Adobe Reader).

    Is there a way, like there was on the PC, to just view the file within the browser without having it actually download the file to the desktop?

    Adobe has a way to do this within Safari, but I dont like using Safari because there is no way to control what sites will allow popups and what wont, its either all or nothing with it (I have several pages that require popups to be working so I cant just block all).

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the idea Trev, but I'd like to stay with Firefox if possible. I'll check into that though as it would solve one of the things I dont like with Safari.

    But no one has any other ideas when using Firefox? How to others using Firefox handle their PDF files from the net?
