Firefox includes by default no plugin for PDF viewing. The Plug-in
AdobePDFViewer.plugin installed by Adobe Reader (depending on what
you select in Reader's Preferences > Internet) in "/Library/Internet
Plug-Ins" does not seem to be seen by Firefox.
- The PDF Download extension <http://www.pdfdownload.org/> seems to
allow Firefox to relate to an already installed PDF viewer plugin.
The screenshots page contain an OS X Tiger section.
- The PDF Browser Plugin <http://www.schubert-it.com/pluginpdf/> from
Schubert|it is an alternative PDF viewer plugin, free for home or
educational user for non-profit activities, shareware otherwise.
Personally I prefer it to Reader's plugin; I used it before Safari
included built-in PDF viewing ability.
It seems the OS X screenshots for Firefox's PDF Download extension
indicate use of the PDF Browser Plugin.
Hope this helps,
