Hi richardconte,

Have you looked at the Knowledge Base article View PDF files in Firefox? First you will need to install a PDF Plugin. Then you'll need to tell Firefox to open the PDF file in the browser. The article covers all of this information and provides troubleshooting steps in case you run into any issues.

Hopefully this helps!

Thank you so much for your response. I've tried that plugin with the Equator site and it didn't work. Let me know if there is another work around.
