The discontinued PDF.js add-on stopped working for me after updating to SeaMonkey 2.46. Is there a workaround or another plugin (other than that awful Adobe Reader PDf plugin)?

Thanks for your help!
SeaMonkey 2.46 Stable, Windows 10 x64 and XP Pro SP3

You might look at Sumatra Free PDF viewer.
Then use menu path Edit->Preferences->Helper Applications to choose Sumatra as the default PDF viewer app.

I'm using pdf.js version 1.4.14 and it seems to work fine in 2.46.

Try this version - https://github.com/mozilla/pdf.js#firefox-and-seamonkey

Because pdf.js is one of those softwares where if it ain't broke, I don't upgrade it.

So, the reason is that version 1.4.14 works for me. :)
