View PDF directly in browser

Hello,
is there a way to change the behavior of the GET button when viewing the books list in a browser (Sharing over the Net option) such that the PDF opens directly in the browser instead of being saved to disk? I'm using Chrome/Firefox on Windows 7.

I checked that the PDF browser plugin is working because other PDF links do open directly in the browser.

Regards,
Patrick

If it's of any help, you can use a PDF manager in FireFox, like PDF Download to directly open the file in your external PDF viewer. You can also tell FireFox to do that with the downloaded file directly. I prefer that method of viewing anyway, as the external viewer has more functionality.
