    Nope, it just keeps opening in PDF-XC. I can open in Google Docs. So, my guess is either some sort of conflict with an extension or something. I would experiment further with non-portable Firefox I suppose, but I don't really need this extension anyway. It was worth having a look though. I thought it might be useful particularly with a portable. I can't figure how to circumvent the default reader on a portable.

    No idea. In the "Applications" tab of Preferences I have set pdf files to "save file" rather than to open with Evince. Yet, after installing this extension, it goes ahead and opens (or tries to open) the file with pdf.js.

    Have you tried to just disable any reader type of plug-in you may have installed?

    You may as well stick with Google Docs, there is a perfectly good Google Docs Viewer extension.

    I'm not sure how I can apply this to a portable browser. One of the reasons that this extension interested me in the first place was that it looked similar to the Google Docs Viewer. At work, the security protocols on the laptops there will let me into GMail but stops me accessing GDocs. On my own computers if I don't want to open the PDF on my computer's reader I just use GDocs.

    Thanks for the info. I'm willing to wait for all of those to be implemented/included in Firefox.
