Firefox Extension Google Documents Direct File Download

I am looking to have an extension designed which will allow me to bypass the Google Documents preview screen and load the document directly in a new tab in Firefox.

## Deliverables

Typically if you use Google Documents and you left click on a non Google Formatted Document such as a PDF file or Word .DOC file Google Docs will automatically open a new tab and will use it's build-in viewer to open the document. From there if a user wants to download a local copy they have to go to File/Download and then select a local file folder and filename to save it.

For my purposes this is not acceptable and there is no built in way to turn this off through Google. What I am using Google Documents for is to store several different types of files in cloud storage to which my co-workers can access the files. Many of these files are are PDF documents which I have custom created using it's javascript engine to perform various calculations and functions. When the documents are opened in Google Viewer obviously they are not being opened in the Acrobat Reader plug-in and thus they don't work correctly. After my co-workers are done with the pdf they would typically close it as there is no reason for them to keep a local copy on their machine.

For this reason here is how I would like the extension to work.

When a user left clicks on a document in Google Documents the extension will check the link for it's file type. If it is a PDF file then the extension will open that document in a new Firefox tab. As all of our machines have Adobe Reader already installed, if the extension is working correctly then the PDF file will open inside of the browser in a new tab using the Reader Plug-In and will be fully usable to the user.

As a hint I believe the correct syntax for downloading a document from Google Docs is:

[url removed, login to view] (File ID Here) &export=download

Ideally there should be no download dialog from Firefox when the document is downloaded nor any prompts to the user.

So it should be fairly simple for someone with a good knowledge of javascript and is familar with how Google Docs works. Keep in mind that because Google Docs used secured protocal i.e https the extension will have to work within this scope.

I will require a completed xpi package for the extension. It should be compatible with Firefox 7.0 or later. I will test it before approving the final distributable. I will also keep in very good contact with the winning bidder. This should take less than an hour or so for a seasoned programmer so bid accordingly. I often have several small projects to be done so the winner bidder may be invited to future projects if I am satisfied with their work.
