Thank you for this question, we don't yet have a way to read PDF files off of the sdcard on Firefox OS. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience. There is a new app for exploring the sdcard (for sharing), so hopefully we'll have an app for reading PDF files coming soon.

Best regards, Michelle
