I've renamed the mimeTypes.rdf and looked on the web for an answer but nothing. I can't get a pdf to display in the Firefox built in pdf viewer.

Is it not supported on v59 & x64 variant?

I saw a post about v52 and x64 not being supported so I figure it just followed but wanted to confirm? I would rather have the download option and open them in the browser for a quick view.

Any help is appreciated and yes I've gone into file association and there is no option to preview in firefox.

Yes, you can. Make sure in about:preferences that Portable Document Format is set to Preview in Firefox:

Another thing is to make sure in about:config that pdfjs.disabled is set to false.
