PDF preview creates bad title for page

Posted

I have a PDF file which when viewed through the firefox pdf previewer causes a page title to be created that seems to be constructed from attributes taken from the PDF. For example, for the document; http://www-content.oracle.com/technetwork/products/clusterware/overview/oracle-clusterware-12c-overview-1969750.pdf

I get a page tile (or a tab title if using tabs) of; Microsoft Word - Oracle_Clusterware_12c_WP - oracle-clusterware-12c-overview-1969750.pdf

I have cleaned my my recent history of "cookies" and "cache" without it making any difference. The title seems to be created by the PDF previewer. If a title must be created then it should just be the doc title itself or a combination of the doc title and file name. It should not include the authoring tool.

Chosen solution

Firefox seems to be placing the document title in front of the file name.

I haven't tried to examine the code, but I would think the viewer would use the Title saved in the PDF metadata.

If you open the PDF in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat and check File > Properties for that PDF, what is listed there?
