Dam you firefox, why can't you be more like Safari?

I love Firefox. I love using the Fox. I love the warm and fuzzy feeling I get from using opensource software.
But, I am drawn to Safari, and for only one feature. I love the way Safari handles PDFs. I like how it opens them in the blink of an eye, letting me view the PDF and then save it with the click of a button (overlay? whatever).
What I'm wondering is, is there any way to get the same behaviour in Firefox. I'm relatively new to Macs (soon to be 1 year), so I'm not too familiar with all the ins and outs, but I assume it is somehow connected to Preview.app.
There was an earlier attempt
at doing something similar on ask.MeFi, but that didn't really lead anywhere. Google searching doesn't help either.
In case you are wondering, I like this because I deal with a lot of PDF files (journal articles, woo). I'd consider switching to Safari as a main browser if it wasn't for the little differences (FF3's address bar, Command+1/2/3/4/etc, copious amount of extensions).
