Well, depending on how the site is constructed, it may be as simple as:
"Right-Click -> Save As..." to save the PDF directly (or does that land
a copy in your tmp folder too?), then open it up in an external PDF viewer.

Or for the wget/curl suggestion, do: "Right Click->Copy Link Location"
to get the URL of the PDF in question, then type "wget " and hit [Paste]
and [Enter]. :)
