Hi mnpmateus, please ignore the spam message with a phone number -- that's not official and we don't know what they will do to your system if you engage.

Hello,

You can use Google Doc :

<iframe src="https://docs.google.com/gview?url=https://path.com/yourpdf.pdf&embedded=true" style="width:600px; height:500px;" frameborder="0"></iframe>

But your file must be online.

Hope it helps. Thank You.

If you need something to install on your own server, there is a web app version of the PDF viewer used in Firefox (pdf.js). More info at https://github.com/mozilla/pdf.js/

I am using this structure: <iframe width="100%" height="400px;" src="data:application/pdf;base64,#{pagamentoBean.txComprovanteBase64}" title="Comprovante de Pagamento"></iframe>

Hi mnpmateus, when you ask Firefox to load a PDF either in the main frame or in an iframe, it will display there in the tab if the user has the setting "Preview in Firefox". Otherwise, it will save automatically or open externally. Is your Firefox not following your setting on the Options page? See: View PDF files in Firefox or choose another viewer
