Per your support page:

https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Opening%20PDF%20files%20within%20Firefox?s=pdf&as=s

it says that for Macs with Intel processors, the Firefox PDF Plugin extension can be used to view PDFs inside Firefox. However when you try to install this plugin on any 5+ version, it shows up as incompatible.

They appear using the sidebar feature but not using the library!

Also an irritating feature seems to be if you go to bookmarks from the menu and scroll down through your folders to try to get to the latest bookmark, the folders open on the way down to the little arrow at the bottom and they obscure it, preventing you from getting to the bottom bookmark. This is really irritating. Can it be fixed?

In the process of completing the upgrade from Vista, suing the Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade Disk we lost power temporarily causing the computer to reboot. It did not restart from the point it was at during the upgrade process and thus lost all Vista info and apparently my Firefox Data. A file called "Windows Old" was created which shows some Firefox files but I see nothing to indicate or point to all my bookmarks.

I am devastated! My research files as well as my teaching aids were all organized in this old installation. Is there any hope here???
