Firefox PDF reader for Firefox Web browser might just be the add-on that put Adobe’s acrobat PDF reader out of business.
When surfing a website, encountering a PDF file is one of those minor annoyances I wish I did not have to deal with. That’s because it interrupts the Web experience. With the release of a built-in PDF reader for Firefox by the Mozilla Foundation, such interruptions are now history.
When installed and enabled, the PDF reader enables Firefox to render a PDF just like a regular Web page. No need to launch Adobe’s PDF Reader or save it to your computer, unless that’s what you want to do.

The built-in PDF reader is an add-on, so installing it follows the same procedure as that of any other Firefox add-on. From the menu, click on Tools > Add-ons. In the Add-ons window, search for “pdf reader.” Install it.
It should now appear in the Extension tab. Now, you may uninstall Adobe’s PDF reader from your computer.
