Scrollbar not visible in built PDF viewer

Posted

The scrollbar is not visible in the PDF viewer. It is when I click on the right side of the window, but it's always a blind attempt since I cannot see where it is and therefore I loose the page I was reading. I have just updated to 62.0 but the issue is still there. I use Ubuntu 18.04.1.

I am afraid there's even no such an option in Ubuntu. It only happens in the Firefox PDF viewer, with the websites the scrollbar is always shown.

the url https://pi.math.cornell.edu/~hatcher/AT/AT.pdf

works fine with me.

your problem can be caused by toolbars so use AdwCleaner & spybot - search & destroy.

if the problem stil exists see this answer https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/925111#answer-325653

I started Firefox in safe mode (that is, without toolbars and addons) and the problem persists. I also use the Default Firefox theme.

Both programmes you pointed are not available for Ubuntu, I am afraid, so I couldn't check.

Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution.
