I think we've got two choices here: if the OS does not appear to be providing us with any good hint, we can add the pdf extension to the list extraMimeEntries list in nsExternalHelperAppService, or we could rely on pdf.js to add a MIME entry for PDFs via the ext-to-type-mapping category. Personally, I think we would want this regardless of the presence of pdf.js.
Boris, you seem to have reviewed changes to the extraMimeEntries list in the past. Would adding one for PDF make sense here?
I think adding PDF there is totally reasonable.
This will be a very simple change for someone to make.
