Firefox viewer is cutting off pdf images

Posted

I'm viewing a PDF in Firefox viewer. It is choosing 2 specific pieces to cut off. When I switch to download and open PDF with Acrobat, everything is fine. I've tried many different things. Please help! Carl

PDF.JS is used in Firefox to display PDF file in the browser. IMO, it shouldn't have become a standard part of Firefox when it did - there was too much about it that wasn't complete, and Mozilla all but stopped developing it once it was a standard part of Firefox.

But in the near future Mozilla will be switching to the PDF reader that is used by Chrome, and from what I have read it is far superior to PDF.JS. Hang in there with Acrobat or Acrobat Reader for awhile yet.
