Firefox shows a PDF invoice provided by my internet bank. The PDF is readable on screen but when I print it out, all the text is scrambled (see enclosed scan). What happens? I have to go the long way and download the document and read it with Adobe Acrobat Reader and print from there to get it right. Or I can use Chrome, from there it will print OK.

When I try to download a .pdf file from my site using http://www.andycraft-beads.co.uk/a5BeadArtBookletGood.pdf I get a file of 5,083,136 bytes which then correctly opens in e.g. Adobe Acrobat Reader. If I use https://www.andycraft-beads.co.uk/a5BeadArtBookletGood.pdf instead, I get a file of 46,153,728 bytes which is corrupt and un-openable. Both IE and Chrome open the file correctly from either source. Is this me?

I would like to write to the site to suggest fixing the code (which, among other problems, seems to include a recursive embed), but am stumped on two issues:

 a) Why other browsers have no problem with the page;
 b) Why Firefox does not even load the page code for analysis.

Can someone help with this?

I have some web pages that embed a PDF document. This worked fine in all major browsers until a couple weeks ago (late December 2018 / early January 2019). It still works fine in IE, Chrome and Edge but not Firefox. It's like Firefox is completely ignoring the <object> tag. I verified I have the latest version of Firefox. I'm on a Windows 10 machine.

I created a small/simple web page to display the issue (it's only 15 lines of html code):

http://missilecommand.org/control_panels/test.html

I tried installing the Firefox add-on for PDF, but that did not help.

Can anyone please help me get this working in Firefox? Thanks,

Just for the past few days 12-19-18 or so I've noticed this happening. I'll get an email, click "print" and it will open the email in a pop-up window. I select "Adobe PDF" as the printer, and then a window usually comes up showing the progress, and then it opens the pdf in Adobe Acrobat.

Recently, however, when that window comes up and shows the progress bar, it freezes. Sometimes I get error messages (shown in screenshots) but mostly I have to go to Task Manager, shut down firefox.exe processes, and I can't print the file to a PDF at all anymore. When I use this feature in Chrome, it works fine. I mean, it used to in Firefox, too, I don't know what changed.

I am having trouble downloading PDFs with Firefox.

- I know how to download the PDF as a whole and name it accordingly.

- I cannot find how to download specific, non-consecutive pages from the PDF (example: pgs. 1,3,5). I have tried selecting the "print" button and redirecting download to my PDF program (Adobe PDF). Unfortunately, this only allows me to download consecutive pages (example: pgs. 1-5).

Any ideas?

So I'm trying to change my default PDF viewer to Mozilla, but it won't change from Edge to Mozilla. I have set these settings "Preview in Mozilla". Also, if I try to change my default PDF viewer in Windows, it won't even let me change to Mozilla, it just pop backs to Microsoft Edge. However, if I try to set my default PDF viewer to Adobe or anything other than that, that totally works fine.

I am embedding a PDF in an iframe like this:

           <iframe id="pdf_frame"></iframe>

I load the image using this Javascript:

       let frame = document.getElementById("pdf_frame");
       frame.src = pdfUrl;  /* URL of the PDF */

At night, my web page will be in a night mode (with a black background). I'd like to launch the embedded PDF viewer in night mode as well. Are there URL parameters to do this? Does the built-in viewer even support a night mode? I know that Acrobat supports a night mode.

Firefox does not show up as an option for pdf files under Control Panel's "Choose default apps by file type".

The problem is on my wife's laptop, (a Dell Inspiron 5759). (Her Windows 10 is up-to-date.) She got a red screen phishing page on Firefox last week. (It claimed to be from Microsoft, and told her to call a certain number -- we did not call.) It essentially locked up her computer -- the mouse wouldn't move, even the power button didn't respond most of the time. I eventually had to unplug her power supply, and remove the battery. When it came back up from that, it responded; so, I uninstalled Firefox and deleted her cache folders.

I've reinstalled Firefox; but, now I can't associate pdf files with Firefox on her machine. Only Microsoft Edge is shown as available in "Choose default apps by file type".

Hi, I'm currently running version 63.0.1 , something has changed with my browser, previously when I clicked on a pdf file it would automatically open within the firefox browser. It's rather frustrating to me as a user of this great browser when a pdf file attempts to open using something other than firefox. I feel sure there MUST be some method to correct this issue. Thanks, David

Hi there, since some days i encounter problems with downloading pdf-files. I tried this link http://personendatenbank.germania-sacra.de/books and tried to download a file by clicking "PDF" at any of the links there. I wouldn´t work. I see the download in the history (strg-j) but there is no progress. I encountered the same problem at another site.

Is there a problem with downloadlinks beginning with http:// ???

In Chrome for example the link works without any problems

Prior FF option to select "preview PDF in FF" is no longer offered (or visible). But my selecting "just" "Firefox" from the drop-down list of available PDF default viewers does not "stick"--the PDF viewer always remains "Edge"--even though FF is set as the general default browser. The same problem was occurring when Acrobat Reader DC was on the computer and it was the default for PDF's--so I entirely removed that app, but now I get (MS's built-in) Edge as the PDF default but not FF. Changing file associations, etc. just does not have any effect! I am using the current versions of FF and Windows 10 Pro.
