You might enable it from inside LO by the checkbox
Tools/Options/Internet/Browser Plug-in/Display documents in browser

AFAIK, you might also enable it for all users when you symlink
libnpsoplugin.so into the mozilla plugin directory. I guess that the
standard path is /usr/lib/browser-plugins.

The result is that it will display LO documents inside the browser
window. It even shows a simple menu that allows basic operations with
the document.

I do not have good experiences with it. Sometimes it showed blank
documents instead of the real one. It slowed down the browser. I had
troubles to save the original document on disk.
