If I receive an email with an attached pdf in Gmail, clicking view will open it in Google Docs. How do I make it open using the browser plugin? I'm using Foxit.

You cannot make it open in the browser plug-in directly. However you can click the download button, select open with, making sure your desired reader is selected.

I generally do not like PDF files opening inside a plug-in in the browser, as a lot of the time it makes the browser unstable. So opening outside the browser is recommended.
