Show PDF inline disabled until Firefox 19 Josh Aas or Andreas Gal Mihaela Velimiroviciu


We want to be able to show PDFs inline in the browser on at least the majority of the platforms we support, and be able to wrap our own UI around it to support things like viewing and saving to disk, etc.

Goal: Make viewing of PDF in the web browser as painless as possible.


Use Cases

  • PDFs are properly displayed with PDF Viewer
  • display PDFs with various formats (large, containing images, different font styles, different font colours, etc)
  • display embeded PDFs
  • display local PDFs
  • navigate document (using "Previous" and "Next" buttons, page number, scrolling)
  • zoom in/out (using buttons, picker)
  • print document
  • download document
  • bookmark
  • display document navigation panel (left side)
  • switch between docment navigation views
  • navigate trough the document using thumbnails/document outline
  • search in document
  • edit document (with forms)
  • text selection
  • copy/paste content (text, images, etc)
  • zoom
