Does anyone else have the problem with Adobe Acrobat Reader where the process seems to hang when opening pdf's within the firefox?
I click on the first pdf and it opens, then go back and try to open another and it just displays a blank page. Or when you close out of the first the acroread process is still stuck maxing out one cpu core until I close firefox.
Is there a better pdf reader that will open inside a tab or frame within firefox? The web scan page for out scanner opens the pdf within a small window so I need a pdf reader that willwork that way.
Have you tried the "PDF Viewer" addon for firefox by Mozilla Labs. It lets you see the file within the browser and download the file if you need it for printing from Adobe Reader. The adobe plugin never worked for me (for especially the reasons you describe).

Now in about:config there is a huge list of entry after entry of preferences. Select the search box and type in browser.preferences.inContent and then right click the matching result and select Toggle. This should set it to the “true” value.
seems not needed for activating the pdf-viewer. It loads the preferences window as a new tab.
Maybe toggle the "dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.nppdf.so" in about:config to false?
Thats already set to false. I may have to go over to HP's support form and see if their webscan forces to adobe. part of my problem is my wife's windows pc keeps wanting to update to adobe reader X which doesn't have the save toolbar when inside the scan page so I'm looking for something that will work cross platform
