Hello, You can configure a pdf-file so that when it is opened with the acrobat plugin, it opens full page (of at a specified percentage zoom) and with or without miniatures. Is this possible with the default Firefox plugin?

Kind regards, Johan Roosien

Hi

I think I may have a different solution for you.

  1. In the address bar, type about:config.
  2. Search for the entry pdfjs.defaultZoomValue.
  3. Double click on the entry to open it and set the value to page-fit.
  4. Click OK to close.
  5. Search for the entry pdfjs.sidebarViewOnLoad.
  6. Double click on the entry to open it and set the value to 1.
  7. Click OK to close.

I hope this helps, but if not, please come back here and we can look into a different solution for you.

Hi

If you open a *.pdf file in Firefox and click on the icon on the top left hand side of the display, you should be able to see thumbnails of the pages in the file.

I hope this helps, but if not, please come back here and we can look into a different solution for you.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply, but we are looking for a way to show the pdf "page to fit" and with thumbnails by default, so the user doesn't need to push the buttons.
