Question

How to disable PDF.js built in viewer for my site

On my site PDF files are used for printing purposes. Starting with v19 visitors start start to claim that this functionality is not working any more. The cause of this is the new built in PDF viewer. It doesn't open print dialog after pdf file download if the the file is built to doing this. Also I’ve found that the quality of printing via the built in viewer is unacceptable. The content is distorted by the JPEG compression and additional headers and footers are present on the page. So for my site built in PDF viewer should be disabled at all. I've found no way to do this at the site level. I think that the instructions for disabling the new feature is too complex for ordinary users and it easier to ask them to use another browser. I think that should be an option at the site level to disable the built in PDF viewer. At least this option should force the browser to ask the user that for working properly with this site the built in PDF viewer should be disabled. And if user choose to disable it this should be done in one click.
