Great, but backspace for back is not working.
Please improve. :)

It would be even better if it worked with adobe reader typewriter tool, so you could fill in pdf forms and print them. here's hoping

Crashes with Firefox 10.0.2. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=733704 I attempted to revert to 2.4.2, only to discover it won't load pdf's at all now.

I sent an email to Manfred Schubert about my problem. He was prompt in responding and asked me to email the Safari and Firefox crash logs. Manfred identified the culprit as Flip4Mac. What? I thought I'd uninstalled that a long time ago (I knew Flip4Mac was causing me problems with other apps). Turns out the only way to properly uninstall Flip4Mac is with it's own Uninstaller (I'd used iTrash). So I reinstalled Flip4Mac, uninstalled it, and installed PDF Browser Plugin 2.4.4. Now we're golden.

I have to say I'm thoroughly impressed with Manfred. He went way above and beyond the call of duty! If only I could get that kind of support for all the apps I've paid for. Thanks Manfred! You're awesome!

To offer a contrasting view, I emailed Schubert support 2 weeks ago and still haven't received a response.

I had 2.4.2 installed in Firefox 11 when PDFs seemed to stop loading in browser around the beginning of April. I noticed that the plugin wouldn't update itself so I had to uninstall it and then install 2.4.4, but that didn't fix the issue.

I know I'm not the only person with this problem. It turns out four other people I know at work and elsewhere are having the same issue as well.

I hope Manfred fixes it soon.

Attempted to fix same issue on FF version 14 and greater, but to no avail. Flip4Mac was not the culprit. Turns out it is the "plugin click-to-play" feature in FF that I had enabled. While the feature works fine for most plugins, it would load the PDF browser plugin but not the actual PDF. Only disabling this feature in about:config or by enabling plugins for a particular site (plugin icon next to favicon only when click-to-play is enabled) would allow the plugin to load PDFs properly. It is a known bug and supposedly Mozilla is working on it. While either "fix" is not ideal, it is the only option at this point if you have enabled click-to-play.

I think our issues precede plugin click to play. That didn't appear until Firefox 14.
Regardless, after not receiving a response from the developer, I moved on to Mozilla's PDF Viewer add-on. It's pretty great, I recommend it.

Samadams, I'd say you're pretty darn lucky - I've sent 3 emails to him and never received a reply.

It would sure be nice if he could make the scroll function work when using up/down arrow keys.

Just noticed that I had to remove the older version first. (Previous ver showed in the Firefox add-ons after "successful" installation of 243 --- inspite of restarting the browser and computer)

Very nice--provides a substantial improvement over the bare-bones default PDF in Safari. Thanks very much for the free-for-non-profit-use licensing model.

Sounds useful. But I'd rather spend a week in a Turkish drunk tank than spend seventy bucks on a browser plugin.

Yes but you can read on the developer's web site that "PDF Browser Plugin 2 is free for not-for-profit activities if used at home or at educational institutions."
I guess you won't regret your Turkish drunk tank week anymore. ;-)

Works really well. Adobe's Plug-in never worked with Mozilla's browsers, its free and even works with Mozilla's 13.0a1 Nightly builds of Firefox. From a loaded PDF I can Save, Print or open with Preview/default PDF viewer.

I'm guessing you have an older version of Firefox. PowerPC based apps (aka your old Firefox... you should download the latest one btw) can use the old plugin but native Intel compiles cannot (such as your Safari)
