Here's a handy extension for Firefox that lets you do that, and even allows you to view the pdf as HTML. I don't happen to use it that much, but I'm glad I have it when I do.

Thanks I'll look in to that...
on a Mac, there is no Options sub menu under the Tools Menu

Hmmm. I would have thought the interface might be the same. Which version of FireFox? Recent?

It's 1.5.06, I believe it is the latest...

Ok, I found the View and Edit Actions, for future reference, it is under Preferences>Downloads.
The problem is when I ask it to change actions for the pdf, the option for "use this plugin" is greyed out and it says none available.
Interesting, I would have thought that Adobe would have created a plug in for Firefox, like the ones for IE, Safari and Opera...

According to Adobe, Gecko based browsers can not use their plug in. They suggested to download PDF Browser Plugin 2.2.3
It works like a charm, pdfs open quickly in the browser window... no more launching Reader.

travel cat -- the plugin you mention appears to be only for Macs. Do they recommend anything for Windows?

according to this page:
The plug in is not supported for Mac OSX. and the details link is how I found the answer.
This page says that Windows is supported. So I guess you just need to download the plug in.
