When will Firefox update the pdf plugin for version 4? This is a major technical oversight which required me to downgrade back to 3.

The PDF plugin which worked great prior to v 4 of FF needs to be updated. I am sure people are aware of this but doesn't seem to be any comments on when this can be resolved.

Chosen solution

The plugin is not made by Mozilla.

TonyE, Thanks. Cleared it up. I saw a comment in a thread about FF 5 this summer having in screen pdf views. I will wait and see how all this plays out.

I don't think you will see that in Firefox 5.

There has been an enhancement request for this since 2006, it has received some attention earlier this year but there is no sign of it being implemented just yet.
