FF version 39.0 (up to date), on a Mac OSX 10.7.5 . I have refreshed FF.

ISSUE: When viewing online PDF's, the text is corrupt.

My default language is set to English. When I copy text from these PDF's into any other application, it pastes in as EN text. If I download/open PDF's in Preview, they open correctly/are readable. I have disabled/enabled the Adode viewer extension - issue persisted. I have run FF in safe mode - issue persisted.

In what way is the text corrupted?

Can you attach a screenshot?

  • Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot
  • Make sure that you do not exceed the maximum size of 1 MB
