Converting PDF will not allow you to fill it in unless your reauthoring it with something the full Acrobat to make those changes. I doubt that was a correct pdf otherwise you need to contact the sender there is a problem. So not sure why this is a firefox issue since the Browser isn't the software that created the pdf.
Hi nikhilesh786, Firefox's PDF viewer (pdf.js) converts PDF files to HTML, and at this point, the viewer cannot emulate the full features of native PDF viewers like Adobe Reader.
If this signature issue is critical to you, please check whether it is already on file with the project or might need to be added:
Since changes may not reach Firefox for 6-12 months, depending on priorities, you probably need to plan on users opening the PDF outside the browser in another viewer. Does Firefox already show a button for that when loading one of your PDFs? If so, that might be enough. Otherwise, you could force downloading of the PDF (Content-Disposition: attachment).
