Until Mozilla devs code up one, you can't.

i just realize that i just have to copy sumatra pdf dll into the plugin folder. now i have flash, silverlight and pdf dlls in the plugin folder therefore i no need to install flash or silverlight. Firefox is just so much customizable than chrome. i might switch back to FF after all :p

The ironic part is that it still doesn't make it native...it's not native unless it's part of the actual code of the browser.

So many people say native these days when they mean something totally different. :p

That's nice but resurrecting an old thread isn't.
