    Firefox 19 will introduce a feature called PDF JS. The Java-script based feature will show PDF files in Firefox without a PDF program like Adobe Reader. It is also included in Firefox 18, but you have to activate it:
    Open about:config, search pdfjs.disabled and set this entry to false. Then search for pdfjs.previousHandler.alwaysAskBeforeHandling and set this entry o true. Done.

    Users of older versions of Firefox need to install the extension PDF JS:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/pdfjs/

    A Live Demo shows, how it looks like:
    PDF.js viewer

    mozilla/pdf.js @ GitHub

    The point is he's not attacking you or what you are posting. Why do you think he is?
