pdfs not shown embedded in firefox

Post by Andreas Hess » Wed Oct 29, 2008 4:53 pm


does anyone know why pdfs like http://www.mccms.mediacluster.de/media/0000000043.pdf are not shown embedden in my Firefox browser but opened in an completely new window? The new window is only a PDFXChange window and shows the pdf as if it would have been saved on disk.
The interestin thing is that when using the IE, the PDF is opend embedded in IE.

The neccesary FF-plugin has been installed.

IE 7
FF 3.0
PDF XC 2.0 (Build 39.2)
Win XP SP3

Thanks for information!

Andreas :D

In the Firefox menu, select Tools and then Options from the dropdown.

In the Options box, select Applications. Scroll down until you get to PDF-XChange Viewer Document (on the left). Now, on the right side, change whatever the setting is (it's probably "Use PDF-XChange Viewer (default)") to Use PDF-XChange Viewer (in Firefox) and then click OK.
