Chosen solution

Firefox uses its own pdf viewer by default. Support for that has not ended.

I am not a Mac user myself. I am not sure whether the plugin shown as

  • "View PDF documents within your web browser. "

Is in fact an additional plugin you may have installed.

Hopefully these two articles will help you sort out the issue.
