Hello, I'm having some problems with the new built-in pdf viewer included on Firefox 19. The problem appears when I'm opening a pdf field who have some fields already filled, and one of these fields is a Check Box that must show a check mark "✓". When the viewer opens it, it shows a number "4". If I open it on Adobe Reader, the check mark is shown properly. If, instead of the check, the field is configured to show a cross (X), the firefox viewer works properly. I know how to disable the viewer, that's not the issue here. Here's a screencap to show it:
This is weird. It must be the coding of the website you are visiting.. Or you can try clearing cache and cookies.
Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache. In order to try to fix these problems, the first step is to clear both cookies and the cache. Note: This will temporarily log you out of all sites you're logged in to. To clear cache and cookies do the following:

Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!
There are still a lot of issues with the build-in PDF viewer that need to be fixed.
They have left the option open to disable the PDF Viewer via a hotfix.
Thanks for the reply feer56, but it is not the cache nor the cookies. It happens to all the computers i've tried with firefox 19.
Thanks for the reply cor-el, I hope my information helps for this issue to be fixed.
That is a problem with the build-in PDF viewer and may already have been fixed in a next Firefox version.
You can give the Firefox 20 beta with its own profile folder a try.
You can also try to install the PDF Viewer version from the Add-ons site that is more recent then the version in Firefox 19 (Nightly 22.0a1 comes with it)
Thanks for the answers, I'll try them and let you know. I've encountered more bugs like this, so maybe next versions will be better.
