In "firefox pdf viewer" no button to save pdf (I can only print it)

more options

I use version 81 of firefox.

A new update of a website has disallow download of pdf. As the attachment I can only print pdf (or print to virtual printer) but I'd like normally save this pdf.

If I click with right key I can only save html (no pdf) and also use an external viewer I have same problem.

Any idea please?

thanks

It looks like that site is using their own version of the PDF.js project (what's used in Firefox) and disabling the download. I'm guessing this, because if that PDF was displayed with Firefox's built in viewer it should look different since we updated the design in 81.

Do downloads still work for a test pdf e.g. https://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/tests/xhtml/testfiles/resources/pdf/dummy.pdf (you should also notice the design looks different)?
