For some reason, whenever I load a pdf from within Firefox, I get a new tab with the regular toolbar displayed on top of pdf files, but the document itself is completely blank (see attached screenshot). This issue just started today and I assume it was a result of an update, since I don't recall making any changes to my settings (I'm using Firefox 101.0.1 on Ubuntu 20.04).

I've tried opening multiple files from a variety of sites with the same result. All of them open fine using my system's pdf viewer, as well as from within Chromium. I've tried disabling my plugins, putting Firefox into safe mode and resetting all the handlers, to no avail. Any help would be much appreciated.

PDF documents magically started loading properly this morning, though I'm not sure what changed (there was a power outage overnight, so the reboot may have helped solve it). Thank you very much for your help with this. I really appreciate it.

Screenshot is not there. We've been having issues with uploading screenshot for too long.
