Correction to the Step-2: 2. From the top-right of the pdf page, tap "Switch to Presentation Mode" by finger.
This needs to be implemented in pdf.js. It looks like in presentation mode they don't do "continuous" scrolling, only page-by-page scrolling. Presumably they can map touch swipes to page scrolling, or something. The code in browser/extensions/pdfjs/content/web/viewer.js already looks like it handles keyboard/mouse/wheel input so touch should be handled there as well.

:bdahl, what is the process for making changes to viewer.js? Do the changes have to go upstream (if so, to which repository) or can I write patches against the copy in m-c?

Upstream at https://github.com/mozilla/pdf.js would be ideal.
