PDF articles are now slightly fuzzy when viewd and printed, they were much clearer a couple weeks ago prior to the most recent update, I think?

Posted

PDF articles used to be very clear and now the print and images are fuzzy. When I download them and open in acrobat they are clear as they used to be. What has changed? I tried to change the options to open the pdfs in acrobat but that did not help. How can i fix this? thanks

hello, firefox 19 has introduced its own integrated pdf viewer - if you want to switch back to the plugin you've used before to view pdfs just go to firefox options > applications & scroll down and define the default action for the portable document format (pdf).

Sorry and thanks for your patience. I did not realize there was also a pdf entry. I should have read your response more closely. Thank you very much it is back to as it should be.
