I'm using Waterfox 10 browser in Windows 7 Home Premium and I just installed Adobe Acrobat X Pro but there is no browser integration for PDFs. If I click a PDF link while browsing, it always asks me to open (i.e. download) the file in an application (Adobe Acrobat). I want it to be displayed inside the browser.

I have Firefox 10 and Chrome installed on the same machine and it works fine there.

I also tried installing Acrobat Reader X (10.1.2) from Adobe site and it doesn't help.

Have you tried copying the plugin from the firefox folder to the waterfox folder? – Raystafarian Feb 5 '12 at 14:45
Which file am I suppose to copy exactly? – rlesko Feb 5 '12 at 14:49
There should be a dll in the plugins folder. Unfortunately, I don't have that plugin or waterfox so I can't help with specifics, sorry. – Raystafarian Feb 5 '12 at 14:51
Don't know where to find that plugin folder so any help would be appreciated. – rlesko Feb 5 '12 at 14:56
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox should be the default install. – Raystafarian Feb 5 '12 at 14:57

Since Adobe Acrobat browser plugin is not 64 bit, it obviously isn't working. There is no workaround that I know off but if you'd like to open PDFs inside your browser, you can use this Firefox/Waterfox plugin.
