We should probably add "pdf" to the list of recognized extensions in src/app/FileExtensionMapper.js and "application/pdf" to the list of recognized mime types in src/app/MimeTypeMapper.js.

After installing this (via silo) and PdfjsViewer, I still can't open PDFs via the web browser app. I verified that the server is sending application/pdf as the content-type, and the file is named test.pdf, but I don't know if PdfjsViewer registers itself as a handler for that type of file.

@selene: which image are you testing it on? ... I tested again there (w/ a ppa that included the fix) and it works. I tested explictly w/ the pdf document you provided in the comment (test.pdf) and by typing the url in the address bar. I got a prompt to select an app for it (in which pdfjsviewer was listed) and after selecting it I could download it and it opened properly ...

Same here, except that I tested with various test PDF documents (just google for "example pdf"). I tested (and it worked) both on utopic-proposed and 14.09-proposed.
