- Fully updated FF + Windows 8 64-bit (9200) - Set up FF as the default program for PDF documents in Windows' Control Panel - Set up FF as the default program for PDFs in FF options

FF still asking me what to do every time I click on a link to a PDF file and the option "Do this automatically..." is grayed out.

Any fix?

Thanks

1 or 2 weeks ago the behaviour of opening PDF changed (settings: open with adobe acrobat in firefox), now some PDF will only download without any other option.

Plugins: Adobe Acrobat Reader is set to "Always active" Options/Applications: PDF are set to open with Adobe Acrobat Reader (in Firefox)

Before (1 or 2 weeks ago): some PDF opened directly in the browser. For others a dialog box appeared, giving me the choice to either save or open the file. If I chose to open, it opened in the normal Adobe Reader (that's still OK, but why do they not all open in the browser?)

Now: what I described above still works with the integrated viewer (i.e. when I change settings to "Preview in Firefox"). With the Adobe plugin, PDF that opened automatically in the browser still do, for the others I don't even get the dialog box. They are just being saved and that's it. How can this be changed?

For the last several versions of Firefox, all attempts at PDF downloads fail. On rare occasions I can go to Save As..., get a dialogue box and save the file. But 80+% of the time it just fails and I have to go and paste the URL into Safari to get the file. Every time Ffx. upgrades I think this might get fixed, but it hasn't. I'm running AdBan and Do Not Track Me in both browsers, so that shouldn't be the issue. Please advise.

Firefox PDF reader is not showing watermarks.

People can see (and print?) my free samples minus the watermarks that are in them.

eg at lauriewilliamsmusic.com/composers/laurie-williams/auld-lang-syne/

Watermarks were put in by PDFill Free PDF Tools and always show up in Adobe Reader.

I never imagined that such a failure could happen until I was checking things today and saw it. Not good.

Just realised that this thing is asking about my browser. I'm writing this in Chrome but I have the latest version of Firefox.

When I uncheck the option "allow pages to use their own colors..." in preferences, and view a PDF using the built-in viewer, all text in PDF documents appears to be printed twice with the default color (usually black) then printed again with my preferred color slightly shifted giving the appearance of all the text having shadows. I usually set my color preferences for pages to have a black background and a light gray text. This may be a bug.

Links in a PDF file viewed with the internal viewer in Firefox 38 do not open

Essentially the same problem as https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/982704.

Links in a PDF file viewed with the internal viewer in Firefox 38 (specifically 38.0.5) on Win 7 (64bit) do not open and are seemingly unresponsive. The PDF was created from the File+SaveAs PDF option in Microsoft Powerpoint 2010. The links are relative (e.g., test.mov, ../newdir/test.html as opposed to absolute like http://test.com/test.mov). Hovering the pointer over any of the links shows "resource://pdf.js/web/". Clicking a link results in no response.

On Internet Explorer (IE) 11, hovering the pointer over any of the links shows the expected (relative) URL. Clicking a link results in the expected URL opening.

Question 982704 noted in January of 2014, "It is already fixed in a future version of the built-in PDF Viewer...when Firefox 28 gets released in March..." Is it broken again, or is there an option which needs to be set either in Firefox or in the creating of the PDF in Powerpoint?

Since Firefox 38 (not sure, might be also since 37) the native Firefox PDF Viewer pdfjs display only white text in all PDF files I open. I checked in about:config and I have the same default settings there like a colleague who has it working fine.

If I set pdfjs.disableFontFace to true it works on some PDF files but for example not on files which I generate with FPDF (nothing changed on the generation code). The font used in FPDF is Arial, so no problem there.

Any ideas?

The scrollbar is not visible in the PDF viewer. It is when I click on the right side of the window, but it's always a blind attempt since I cannot see where it is and therefore I loose the page I was reading. I have just updated to 62.0 but the issue is still there. I use Ubuntu 18.04.1.

I would like to use the Nitro PDF viewer plugin as I view hundreds of PDFs a week in my browser. Often, I will email the PDF with a quick link. Now that the ability to view PDFs in the browser is limited to the built-in Firefox PDF viewer, you will need to upgrade it's capabilities to meet the flexibility of the other PDF plugins that can no longer be used with Firefox. Nobody wants to be forced to save every PDF to their drive, and then go find it and open it in their 3rd party viewer to view it properly or email it off.

Please add an "Email PDF" button, as well as an "Open PDF" (with the default PDF viewer) button to the integrated Firefox PDF interface.

Thank you, Joe

Using a 2012 Macbook Pro with Mac OS Sierra (10.12.6) and FF v. 62. This behavior started about 4 weeks ago: Any time I click on a link to a PDF on a website, the PDF will either not be displayed at all (all I get is an empty page) or a partial rendering. However, downloading it works just fine and it is displayed correctly using the built in Preview app.

Today I actually got a message (PDF may not display correctly) with an option to open in a different viewer (which simply downloaded it).

I don't necessarily want to be forced to download using up bandwidth and having to delete these things continuously. It used to display just fine.

FWIW, I was going to upload a very small screenshot of the error message, but it has been trying for 5 minutes (which is a bit long for a small file), so I am going to abandon that idea.

Basically, if a PDF file has italics, they print out bold. If I print to a file and reopen it in firefox, it also appears bold and not italic on the screen.

I read a similar post where a user had the same issue, but their solution seemed to be "open in Adobe Reader," which seems like a lame solution.. Their complaint was that the extra step is annoying, and I agree. When I download a PDF file or open one from Firefox, I should be able to do so within the browser. I can do it chrome, but I prefer not to use chrome.

I tried to attach screen shots of the page as it is supposed to be and how it actually prints, but the "Uploaded images:" box just keeps spinning. If anyone can help and would like to see what my issue actually looks like, I can sent you a picture somehow, I'm sure.

At night, my web page will be in a night mode (with a black background). I'd like to launch the embedded PDF viewer in night mode as well. Are there URL parameters to do this? Does the built-in viewer even support a night mode? I know that Acrobat supports a night mode.

Hi, I'm currently running version 63.0.1 , something has changed with my browser, previously when I clicked on a pdf file it would automatically open within the firefox browser. It's rather frustrating to me as a user of this great browser when a pdf file attempts to open using something other than firefox. I feel sure there MUST be some method to correct this issue.
