I really don't like the look-and-feel of the new viewer. On my machine (6 yr old HP running Windows XP with sp 3) it displays slower than. Firefox has a built-in PDF viewer. We'll show you how to disable it and use another PDF viewer, like Adobe Reader, instead. Attach (recommended) or Link to PDF file here: Configuration: Web browser and its version: Operating system and its version: version: Is.

Before I take a look at how you can remove the PDF Viewer extension in Firefox, I'd like to spend a moment talking about why it is necessary to write about it. Add-on removals should be straightforward operations after all. The big issue here is that you can't remove add-ons installed by third party software from within Firefox. And third parties in this regard also means Mozilla, if the company decides to add an add-on to Firefox automatically. While you can disable those add-ons, you can't remove them. If you are running a Nightly version of the browser, you have probably noticed the new PDF Viewer in the add-ons manager.

I really don't like the look-and-feel of the new pdf. Frankly I want to disable pdf.


It doesn't display anywhere I could find on Add-ons Manager. I don't want to be compelled to use a feature that seems to be a performance detriment, at least for me. Mozilla, please rethink this! You can set the pdfjs.

Madperson's suggestion didn't work the first time I tried it. Once I followed the advice from cor-el and disabled the pdf. My Adobe Reader once again works inside Firefox, just as before. I can also download, of course. Thanks to you both.

I have done ALL of this multiple times and Firefox still tries to open in pdf. Regarding firefox changing my default preference for Acrobat when updating to v Hopefully new updates will honor my preferences as I've set them.

Modified March 9, at 9: You can delete the mimeTypes. As bssjersey points out, FF19 ignores your "Application preferences", described [ https: This is counter-intuitive and user-unfriendly.

One shouldn't have to override settings disable pdf.

Modified March 21, at 2: It would be extremely helpful if Godzilla or whatever monster you are out there stopped immediately forcing updates which without prior notice go and change the basic behavior of the software, but rather concentrated on providing security updates of this browser of notoriously inefficient coding and poor performance, if absolutely necessary.

This time I thought that it must be some vicious malware that had captured my machine and disabled my Acrobat plugin. Thank God I managed to restore it, but this took far too much time.

Unfortunately I'm no schoolchild any more and just wouldn't have time clearing your messes. I know that there aren't many among you to understand. Thanx anyway for taking this into consideration, even though I'm quite pissed of on you.

Oh how beautiful. In Wikipedia I discovered the existence of the corporate version Firefox ESR and immediately "downgraded" to that one, in the hope that it really wouldn't trouble me with unnecessary and unwanted "upgrades" every couple of weeks.

How To Remove The PDF.JS PDF Viewer Extension In Firefox

You folks should advertise the ESR version much more, so that not that many disappointed customers who you try to make use of as involuntary beta testers wouldn't go for Chrome, or even Safari or Opera. I had no idea it existed. I don't plan to "downgrade" to it, though, unless Mozilla burns me again with another change like the one to pdf.

I don't object to being a beta tester. Wide rollout seems to be essential to development of new web software - the bugs have to be exposed somehow. Whose idea was this pdf. It's horrible. It's hideous. It's slower than death. I'm really getting tired of these little surprises every couple of weeks in Firefox. I'm seriously ready to switch to something else, but they've all gone to pot too.

Chrome is so much slower than Firefox I refuse to use it, except that I MUST use it sometimes because Firefox will no longer function when I'm using certain other programs. Firefox loads to a black screen and freezes.

I'm going to check out this ESR version. I'm really tired of having to spend an unexpected hour to fix my Firefox installation every few weeks. Adobe's Acrobat reader wasn't broken. Why did we need to "fix" it with this pdf.

Oh, and for the record, I'm a former professional software tester who worked for WordPerfect and Novell.

I get this warning on nearly every PDF I open. Maybe only one or two have had an issue rendering. A "Don't tell me again" or equivalent button would be fine.

Or how about a flag in about: Or, don't show the warning at all, and put a button to "open in a different viewer" in the toolbar. If most PDFs have this warning, then it's fair to label pdf. I think that PDF. I have no problem doing that, but standard end-users will be completely confused with all that.

I think Adblock Plus's options in about: See how Adblock Plus does it. I would like to see this implemented as well. I often get the warning when I don't want it. This happens a lot, and it is almost never the same error. You have to look at the error console to see what the error is. I second waddlesplash's emotion Please, please make it a configurable option in the Mozilla browser, something like pdfjs.
