Hi,

I have one problem.

In firefox v.41, when I previewed a pdf, if the pdf had a links inside, there was no problem, but from I updated Firefox to v.42, the links don't work. In fact, when I click in the link, it doesn't do anything.

The problem is, I manage a web with some norms in Spain and this is a important problem for our users.

The document is http://www.codigotecnico.org/images/stories/pdf/seguridadIncendio/DccSI.pdf (Page.32)

Thanks in advance.

Yes, I have remove the character with the Inspector and it works.

I suppose it is a Microsoft Word problem.

I will try to recreate the document.

Thank you.

There seems to be several problems with that PDF. The below link did nothing when I tried to open it. I tried to copy it, but it would not copy. I then used an add-on

Copy As Plain Text {web link} Removes formatting from copied text.

And was able to copy it. But when I tried the link in a new window;

http://www.codigotecnico.org/images/stories/pdf/segur idadIncendio/articul o_propagacion_fachadas_361.pd

Not Found The requested URL /images/stories/pdf/seguridadIncendio/articulo_propagacion_fachadas_361.pd was not found on this server.


I opened Inspect Element on the link, and found this;

title="http://www.codigotecnico.org/images/stories/pdf/seguridadIncendio/articulo_propagacion_fachadas_361.pdf<unknown character> "

PS: This link does work. Contact the creator, and have them remove the unknown character after the PDF.

The links have a null byte appended (the same with the link on page 2). I don't know if that is causing the problem, but they do work for me if I use copy link location in the right-click context menu and paste the link in the location bar.

The link looks okay in Acrobat 11, so I'm not sure how that "null" character got in there. Might be a bug in the PDF Viewer related to something in the surrounding text.

The links work and show link at the bottom on hover if I use the Inspector to remove the trailing null byte.

The properties show
