Sorry, it does work now in case that *.pdf is specified in the url. 
However, when I try and load a pdf where the *.pdf is not specified in 
the url nothing happens.. But I know that it should work as with 
windows-clients using firefox those pdfs get displayed in the browser.

Sry for the confusion and thanks!
