HowTo: Firefox Disable Default PDF Viewer / Plugin

Posted on in Categories last updated March 7, 2013

I recently updated my Mozilla Firefox. Firefox now includes a built-in PDF viewer that allows me to see PDF files found on the web without a plugin. The built-in PDF viewer is enabled by default. However, I found that this pdf viewer is not working properly with various web-sites, and it works slowly. How do disable the built-in PDF viewer so that I can use the Adobe PDF viewer or other PDF viewer that is shipped with my operating systems?
