    Please add a link to the PDF.js Add-on from Mozilla Labs, available at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pdfjs/

    Note: This Add-on will be bundled with Firefox, possibly as soon FF14

    I am not sure it's ready to be used. Indeed, I have problems with fonts and spacing. See this French doc that is unreadable.

    If users have bad experience the first time, they will let it disabled and use their PDF plugin instead.

    scoobidiver, can you try again with the latest code at:

    http://mozilla.github.com/pdf.js/extensions/firefox/pdf.js.xpi

    If you still see the problem, can you please file a bug at

    https://github.com/mozilla/pdf.js/issues

    And we'll be sure to take a look. We've been testing against lots of prominent PDF's on the web, and we think it's ready for Nightly.

    I edited the article that is now in pending review.

    For those who are interested, there's a pdf.js presentation here.

    But it's not ready for a release version as a user expects a one-to-one rendering matching with any PDF reader plugin. See this list of PDF-broken bugs.
