And I clearly stated that
for now the Isaac Schemm's plug-in works fine
Learn the difference between a plugin and an extension first. And goes back to my statement - if it works fine then why even create this whole thread?

To create drama and show the world just how unreasonable and monstrous we all are by not caving to their demands. Also to waste our time.

Think Latitude and badnick and John connor types.
Big concerns grow from small concerns. You plant them, water them with tears, fertilize them with unconcern. If you ignore them, they grow.
I have ignored this problem long enough.

So with the new Pale Moon version, pdf reader/viewer is not supported anymore. Any workarounds to get such an addon working?

Thank You

Huh, where did you get that idea? IsaacSchemm's pdf.js works well in 29.2.0.

It works fine if you use the one I linked to in older posts in this thread since that one targets Pale Moon.

I had the pdf viewer installed from another dev, it was the external one that was used by Pale Moon. It stopped working after this update, but I installed pdf.js and it working for me, thanks!
