Make that AdobePDFviewer.plugin rahter than PDFviewr.

Note that Adobe also install an Adobe Framework inside Safari! How Dare They
Do That!!!!???? Leaving it there is harmless so don't worry about that; it
will disappear with the next update of Safari.

You also might try Camino, which uses the Gecko Engine, like Mozilla and
Firefox, but has a Cocoa front end. Some things are a bit rough (entering
text in text boxes doesn't offer spell checking and has a bit of a delay).
Try one of the recent daily builds.

Good Luck,
