Would it be possible to have an option that turns off the the library feature - so that the extension operates similar to Firefox's built in PDF reader.

Thanks BR

Errata - I misnamed this thread - should be No Catalog Option

seconded. I use Calibre to manage my Library and use 'Open With' for alternate viewers.

I would like an option that will ask when downloading Externally (Not file:\\) : 'Save as Standard Download' or 'View') The logic is if it is a Local file, I most assuredly want the view. With an external file, it is probably destined for Calibre.
The present method requires a number of steps to get the file to Calibre, then clean out the remains. I ended up disabling the PI until I need it as a test viewer.

The only time I want the extension to save anything is when I hit the save button, irrespective of where the file came from.

As I said, something similar to the PDF reader that comes with Firefox - with a similar sidebar would be nice.

I use the extension on my notebook, I do not run calibre on my notebook. I keep the software on it to a bare bones minimum.

Thanks
