That's really strange. What if you open that PDF directly into Firefox's built-in PDF viewer -- same issue?

Clicking download and open I get the same.

Problem here is once a pdf is created it is set and if it was not formatted incorrectly from the sendre nothing can be fixed one it's a pdf. Did you ask the sender to verify the pdf they sent was correct?
