    I asked the question in the Sumatra release thread but there weren't any responses so I'm bumping it!
    So I assume that the browser plugin enables viewing PDFs without downloading them. Despite the fact I have the Firefox Pi enabled and any other PDF Pi disabled, Ff has always just downloaded the PDF. What am I doing wrong? Thank you!

    As far as I know, Sumatra PDF has no browser plugins.

    It's just a nice lightweight standalone PDF viewer. ;)

    FWIW... IMO, running other programs inside the browser is probably a less secure approach to web safety. I try to avoid it when possible...

    It would be in a Sandboxie sandbox, although I have Sandboxie setup to run Sumatra sandboxed when opening downloaded PDFs. Not sure it would open sandboxed in a sandbox, if that makes any sense, but it would still be in the sandbox one way or the other. As it stands I can't get it to work.
