I have a web page with a link to a PDF on it. When I click on this link, the PDF opens in a new tab using the Adobe viewer, and displays fine. However, links within the PDF itself are ignored. When I view the same web page in Chrome or IE, the PDF also opens in a viewer, but under these browsers, the links within the PDF itself work as well. Is there any setting or adjustment I can make to Firefox or its PDF viewer to make the links within the PDF work? Thanks for any help. WJH

Hello Community,

I always used Firefox as PDF-Viewer and it worked fine. But since the last update it is not possible to view PDF-files anymore: whenever I click on a PDF or a link to a PDF - Firefox creates new tabs endlessly. When I quit Firefox and restart it I have lots of new and empty tabs in the browser, but no PDF. It's very annoying because I have to close them all manually and can't view PDFs anymore.

I have not installed any new software, no registry hacks, have changed nothing in the browsers config, so I suppose it has something to do with the update to 76.0.1

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I really enjoy Firefox, but lately I've been having to go back to Chrome to get things done. The latest is that when I view a PDF in the browser the option to download the file does nothing. I then tried the same website on Google Chrome, the button worked and I was able to download the file.

I tried setting Firefox to open the PDF in Acrobat but there were no changes. I also tried using Firefox in Private mode in case an extension was causing a problem.

The website is the county records search site for Miami, Florida. Search for any name, view a record, the click on Document image. A PDF opens in the browser with a print option, and a download option. The download option does nothing when clicked on. Do the same on Google Chrome, then it does work.

Thanks for any help!

I've uploaded a few PDFs to my company's website, but when I open the PDFs in Firefox they display and print incorrectly (with elements of my company logo in weird places). If I open the PDFs in Chrome, they display and print perfectly. My designer can't find any hidden layers in the PDF, so that's not the problem.

Until a few days ago, I was able to open a shipping label on Ebay within Firefox, by pressing the OPEN button and a new tab would open with the label. I was then able to press a PRINT button and the label printed.

Now I purchase the label, the page changes as before and offers me a PRINT LABEL or SAVE LABEL, but when I press the PRINT LABEL button it goes into the save as mode. I tried the SAVE LABEL button and it does the same thing.

There were always the two options. PRINT or SAVE. Now both button just save the label.

Do I need to change some kind of setting? I've asked Ebay if they made any changes and I'm waiting to hear back from them.

Thank you.

Got a new pc (Lenovo AIO 540) 2 days ago. Wanted to open a pdf webfile with my standard browser firefox. I only got an empty page. It worked with my former pc (HP). Changed the opening for a pdf file to Acrobat in the settings, but the result was the same. Tried the same with Microsoft Edge and it worked surprisingly. I don´t wanna change my standard browser from firefox in any othe one. Has anybody an idea what to change in the settings of firefox or adobe to get a correct result?

I have a website I use for sharing documentation. Some of these are in the form of manuals and I have no problem with these, they open in the browser as required. Others are portfolios which contain many different pdf forms. Up until the last update these opened the portfolio and clicking on a particular form link opened the form in a new browser tab. Since the update the portfolio opens but the forms do not.

When I look at the developer console I see the following error message: Error: Access to 'blob:resource://pdf.js/6c1fbe42-b5ba-48af-89a3-efb4fc5ee161?CRW%2002%20-%20Course%20Summary%20and%20Assessment%20Form.pdf' from script denied 3 viewer.js:4510:14

Is there a solution?

When trying to do the same thing on firefox a new tab opens normally and the pdf appears to load (as shown by the progress highlight in the taskbar icon) but all I get is a blank page in the new tab. Is there any way for the pdf to load in the page and print?

Downloaded PDF's don't always contain .PDF file extension and aren't able to be opened without manually adding extension. This isn't always the case, but is consistent with various different websites - e.g., downloading a w9 form from IRS website works fine, but downloading my bank statements or insurance bill leaves me with a generic (no extension file) in my downloads directory.

I used to have two profiles. I deleted one. But I still got profile manager first when starting FF. So I clicked the box to load the default without asking. I'm almost sure that it was immediately after that, when clicking on links elsewhere (e.g. shortcuts I've created, links in pdfs) I get the "FF is already running message." So I manually opened profile manager and unclicked the "use selected profile without asking" button (and I've gone back and confirmed its unchecked) and I'm still getting the message.

If I do this on Google Chrome it saves them correctly. Probably something silly at my end but cant see it. Disabling all extensions makes no difference.

A PDF file is always instantly downloaded to my downloads directory, without asking anything. I've set it to this behaviour at some point, long long ago. Now I want Firefox to use its built-in viewer, but I can't get it to work.

See the attached image for how it's set in the options panel.

I'm a bit confused as to why there's both "Portable document Format (PDF)" and "PDF file". The latter one does NOT have an option "Preview in Firefox". So I've set that one to "Always Ask", but even that won't work. It seems whatever I set these two to, makes absolutely no difference to how Firefox behaves when I click a link to a PDF.

Firefox shows a PDF invoice provided by my internet bank. The PDF is readable on screen but when I print it out, all the text is scrambled (see enclosed scan). What happens? I have to go the long way and download the document and read it with Adobe Acrobat Reader and print from there to get it right. Or I can use Chrome, from there it will print OK.
