PDF in Firefox 3!

A great tip submitted by Kenneth Fung: I really like Firefox 3, but sometimes there are just a few features from Safari that I wish were also part of Firefox. The Firefox extensions pretty much solves whatever is missing in Firefox and there is also one for viewing PDFs just like in Safari. It is very simple and it works great. Thanks for the tip Kenneth! You can download the Firefox extension here.

FINALLY!

After the old Shuber|it plugin broke on the intel macs I thought this would never come about.

Oh and here are a few Tips in a Tip. First: Right clicking in the pdf will give you and option to open in Preview.

Second: Firefox text search will work as well. Just hit Command-F and you are on your way.

This is a good tip. Another difference between Safari and Firefox, where I think Safari handles it better, is when you want to save a web page and you go to file/save as Safari saves the web page as 1 file where Firefox saves the web page as about 4 to 5 different files. How can I save a web page as 1 file in Firefox?

"PDF Download" is a better extension option for this purpose: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/636
