Firefox for Android can't display PDFs. You'll need to download a PDF viewer from the Google Play Store, e.g. like Acrobat Reader.

This is your bug on opening any pdf file doesn't matter the pdf viewer, including ofc Acrobat.. Solve it. On anything else all works fine even in Samsung internet browser. Sad

This doesn't work. I have Acrobat on my Pixel 3a and a URL to a PDF will launch the app perfectly in Chrome but in Firefox, the URL triggers Acrobat to launch and then I get a message saying something like (paraphrasing as it flashes up for only a couple of seconds) "there is no app on this device to open the file".

I probably should open a new ticket :D
