Hello,
developer "Manuel Reimer" made useful addon "Android PDF.js": https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/addon/android-pdf-js/
But when calling that URL on my tablet with Android 8.1 I get message: "No available on Firefox for Android"! A contradiction!

Who can help? - I wanted to make a bug report, but access to bug reporting system impossible (at the moment): "Error...."

Mozilla only has allowed a certain number of add-ons currently. This is not one of them. They plan on allowing all like before, but now you have to enable ones not approved through a developer options setting in Firefox.

Do, or do not. There is no try.

Thank you VERY MUCH!!!!

@21.11.: I uninstalled firefox from Android. Installed https://firefox.en.uptodown.com/android ... ad/2289715 FF 68.10.1, last version before 79.0.0. Then installed pdf.js from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/androi ... id-pdf-js/ from Manuel Reimers (but Add to firefox was locked, "download" worked and after downloaded asked me if I want to add to firefox. Now plugin works! :)
