It is not possible in a clean way through configuration, you need a module that modifies the behaviour of openerp reports to be inline. There are two options:

  • https://github.com/buke/openerp-web-pdf-preview-print I think this is the best option as it works all the time, the caveat is it launches a separated window like a popup (then you require to accept popups).
  • https://www.openerp.com/apps/web_pdf_viewer - This is amazing as it shows the pdf in the work area of openerp (no need to open a new tab or a new window) but at the moment doesn't work at all times, some reports are just downloaded instead of displayed (I dunno why).
