Here, the browser widget displays pdf-files without any hiccups. On my MacBook I have Adobe Acrobat installed, and the browser widget seems to use Adobe Acrobat to display pdf-files inside the widget. When I remove Adobe Acrobat from the application folder, trying to view a pdf-file in the browser widget will prompt me to locate either Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader.
