Default Embedded PDF in Firefox

I have mozplugger-1.14.2-1.fc15.x86_64 installed (so I can run 32-bit
Flash with 64-bit Firefox). Mozplugger also is supposed to support
embedding PDF displays in a Firefox tab with evince or Adobe Reader, but
in my browser, following a link to a PDF results in a window with blank
content.

I've tried with a personal .mozplugger/mozpluggerrc containing:

application/pdf: pdf: PDF file
application/x-pdf: pdf: PDF file
text/pdf: pdf: PDF file
text/x-pdf: pdf: PDF file
application/x-postscript: ps: PostScript file
application/postscript: ps: PostScript file
repeat noisy swallow(evince) fill: evince "$file"

I've also tried without that, using the default /etc/mozplugger, which
contains:

### Acrobat Reader
define(ACROREAD, [repeat swallow(acroread) fill : acroread -openInNewWindow /a "
$fragment" "$file"])
...
application/pdfdf:PDF file
application/x-pdfdf:PDF file
text/pdfdf:PDF file
text/x-pdfdf:PDF file
ACROREAD()
repeat noisy swallow(kpdf) fill: kpdf "$file"
repeat noisy swallow(Xpdf) fill: xpdf -g +9000+9000 "$file"
repeat noisy swallow(okular) fill: okular "$file"
repeat noisy swallow(epdfview) fill: epdfview "$file"
GV()
repeat noisy fill exits: evince "$file"

This has been going on for at least a few versions of Firefox and maybe
other relevant packages as well. I currently have Adobe Reader
installed, but I get the same result if I uninstall it.

Any idea what I've got wrong? If I can't get embedded display working,
how do I fall back to opening a separate window?

TIA.

I'd love to know too, because it seems like every stupid
financial site I have to access to see things like
online paystubs, etc. is using these embedded PDFs which
do not work at all in firefox on linux.

Right now, I have to crank up a Windows XP virtual machine
to access the files.

I hate "helpful" web sites! (Especially ones I absolutely
have to access).

FWIW (I'm not currently running fedora, but Centos) I don't even have
mozplugger installed (or at least aboutlugins doesn't show it) but
pdf files work fine using nppdf.so as the PDF plugin. They appear
right inside a firefox window/tab.

As far as I recall, F14 on my eeepc did the same.

nppdf.so is a part of Adobe's AdobeReader_enu RPM. It is a 486 binary
and can be used on either 686 or x86_64 systems (with the appropriate
support glue installed).

But unfortunately, the support glue doesn't work :-).
