FF 19 and PDF viewer issue
So the latest version of Firefox 19 comes with a built in PDF viewer.
The problem that I found is that this viewer at its present time does NOT show fillable fields ina PDF, or let the user type into these fillable fields, or show the electronic print and instructions buttons we place at the top of most of our PDF "forms".
This form should show buttons at the top and let a user fill it out. It does with the Reader plugin. In FF 19's built in PDF viewer I cant seem to do anything.
We presently make all our PDF forms fillable, so if this is an issue, hopefully a fix or update can be found.
This is under development.

Yes, I refered to the nomal one. Recently, I'm studying about the SDKs, and I do think this is a good place.
And what, exactly, was SO wrong with just using Adobe Reader? Sure it loaded a little slow sometimes, but it worked, consistently, in every browser, the way us content creators intended!

You should be able to set Firefox back to using Adobe Reader from Preferences/Options > Applications> Portable Document Format (PDF). I was able to set it back to using PDFView.
