I recently installed an Update and received a message that my PDF Plug In for Firefox would be disabled, but that when the Update had been installed the Plug in would be enabled. This has not happened. I am running Firefox 5 on Mac OSX (10.6)

As suggested in other places (https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/838551, http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=10944557#p10944557), you might try the Schubert|it PDF Browser plugin, available at http://www.schubert-it.com/pluginpdf/

As an alternative, it seems you can get the Firefox PDF Plugin for Mac OS X to work with a little tweaking: http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20110622163401497

I've tried the download three times. It reports that installation was successful, but when I use Firefox I still get only an option to download the .pdf; I still can't read it within the browser. This fix WAS for Firefox 5.0, right?
