How can I open PDFs in the ESR 52.2.0 64 bit Firefox?

Posted

This version appears not to be equipped with the built-in PDF viewer, and I don't see a plugin that will work, either.

Can anyone tell me what my options are?

For an external app, there's always Adobe Reader.

The keywords are "open PDFs in... Firefox".

Thanks, though.

You need a Developer Edition or Nightly Firefox build (Beta won't work as well) that supports Legacy extensions to be able to use the PDF developer version.

I do not want to use neither 'Legacy extensions' nor 'PDF developer version'. All I want is to make Firefox built-in PDF Viewer (pdfjs) work in standard release version.
