Can't load PDF bank statements with new version of Firefox Sept 2019

பதிவிடப்பட்டது

I used to get my PDF bank statements with no problem. Recently I go into the bank's site, ask for the statement, and instead of seeing the actual statement I see a screen like the one in the attached image. I called the bank and they said it was an issue with the new version of Firefox, and I was able to access the statements using the Edge browser. How can I fix this in Firefox? I use Win 10 64 bit.

Hi hospes.primus, I just went to my bank for my PDF bank statement and all that I got was a blank page.

But, then I went to: Menu -> Options -> General page and under Applications set PDF to Use Adobe Reader.

Statement in hand.

Thank you! I use Sumatra PDF rather than Adobe Reader, but changing the PDF application from the built-in Firefox preview to Sumatra worked.

I marked the problem as solved since I can now get my statements, but if it's true that a change in FIrefox has caused it not to work with banks and such sites, I hope that will be fixed to avoid problems for users.

It's probably the difference between Preview and Print ???

At least we know how to work it!

Glad I could help.

Hi hospes.primus, was that the only site where Firefox's built-in PDF Viewer was behaving strangely, or was it affecting PDFs from all sites??

Only the bank site.

hospes.primus, One other thing that I noticed. If you have the App handler for PDF set to Always Ask and select Open In Firefox - it won't do it but, it will save a copy to a Temp folder. So, check those containing folders for documents.

By the way, unless the setting is "Preview in Firefox", sending a PDF to Firefox won't actually display the PDF in Firefox. In the worst case scenario, you can end up with an infinite loop: Firefox repeatedly opens empty tabs or windows after you click on a link.

I always get an empty tab when I select OK, but, I haven't had an infinite loop. Not yet, anyway.


By the way, the containing folder is: C:/User/<YourName>/AppData/Local/Temp
