firefox Clipping PDFs with FFs PDF Viewer

Idea

Can anyone tell me what plug-in, viewer, something, works in Firefox with the Evernote clipper?  As it is, when I try to clip a PDF, in the resulting note I get:  

 

"Thumbnails Document Outline

Toggle Sidebar

 
Previous
 
Next
Page:   of 2
Presentation Mode Print Download [link to view/download PDF]
Zoom Out
 
Zoom In"

 

Obviously, not the PDF.  Yes, I can download the PDF and import it, but then I lose the URL.

The HTML5 PDF Viewer seems to work quite nicely:

It's a no-restart extensioin, and even works under SeaMonkey. I just tested against Webclipper for Firefox 5.8.293482, and it worked as expected (under openSUSE 12.3, SeaMonkey 2.20 - I modify Webclipper to run under SeaMonkey, but none of my tweaks impact basic functionality one way or the other).

 

I accessed the pdf in a browser tab, started the web clipper, clipped the PDF by clicking the button in the web clipper, and then viewed it. It opened in a new browser window, looking just as I had expected it to look, with a handy link at the top to the original file.
