add pdf to content window in preferences


How do I add 'content' to the applications window. There is no content containing 'pdf' in any of the items in this window. Others have asked this and been given advice to do other things but no-one has had a specific answer to this question.

It would be nice if the Firefox folks would jump in and answer this question.
