FF PDF viewer - Users can't open links in pdf documents

My website has a number of pdf pages, each of which has a linked button for "More detail". This works fine in IE and fine in Pale Moon and fine in CHrome and fine even in FF if FF is set to use the Adobe pdf viewer.

But if FF is using the built in viewer, the links don't work, either completely non-responsive, or go to the wrong address.

This issue has been bugging people for a few years, is it possible to get it fixed please? I am tired of dealing with frustrated users who can't open the linked files.

Example look here: http://canberrabirds.org.au/wp-content/BirdSummaryData/Australasian%20Bittern.pdf andclick on More Detail blue button at top.

Just for the past few days 12-19-18 or so I've noticed this happening. I'll get an email, click "print" and it will open the email in a pop-up window. I select "Adobe PDF" as the printer, and then a window usually comes up showing the progress, and then it opens the pdf in Adobe Acrobat.

Recently, however, when that window comes up and shows the progress bar, it freezes. Sometimes I get error messages (shown in screenshots) but mostly I have to go to Task Manager, shut down firefox.exe processes, and I can't print the file to a PDF at all anymore. When I use this feature in Chrome, it works fine. I mean, it used to in Firefox, too, I don't know what changed.

So I'm trying to change my default PDF viewer to Mozilla, but it won't change from Edge to Mozilla. I have set these settings "Preview in Mozilla". Also, if I try to change my default PDF viewer in Windows, it won't even let me change to Mozilla, it just pop backs to Microsoft Edge. However, if I try to set my default PDF viewer to Adobe or anything other than that, that totally works fine.

Foxit Reader is my favourite PDF program. To be able to save and print from the preview window in Firefox (on the left hand upper side) I use the ESR channel. Till version 59.9 at the bottom of the preview window a toolbar appeared with which I could save or print the document. Since the upgrade to version 60.2, this toolbar does not appear (which was the fact when I used the standard version of Firefox). I want to downgrade to ESR 59.9 (though Mozilla does not recommend this) in order to have back the toolbar, but if I choose for this version (in the download history under 'options') the latest version remains. Secondly: Is there a way to retrieve the mentioned toolbar in ESR version 60.2?

I have been having a problem with Firefox and AOL.com when it comes to attaching .pdf files. It seems to only affect .pdf files when using AOL.com. I get the following error message: "The message was not sent because of an error." It also doesn't allow me to save that particular message as a draft.

I can upload other file types, granted I haven't tried to upload every single type of file type, but I was successfully able to attach the following file types: .doc; .docx; .xls; .jpg; .txt.

If I try attaching a .pdf file with any of the other file types that it usually sends, I get the same error message and am not able to send the e-mail. I can send .pdf files from AOL.com when I use Internet Explorer with no problems. Additionally, I have no problems attaching and sending .pdf files using gmail in Firefox. I also noticed that the same thing happens when I try to send a .pdf attachment using Yahoo.com, but like with AOL.com, I am able to send other file types using Yahoo.com.

I tried starting Firefox in "Safe Mode" with the Add-ons disabled, but the problem was still there. This has been going on for a few months, with the various update versions of Firefox. I have tried this on my home and work wifi networks with the same results. I use the AOL account for work, so I don't use it all that often, which is why I thought that it was a temporary glitch, but I think that it is more than just a temporary glitch.

Also, I tried various PDF files of different sizes and from different locations, with long and short file names, but all had the same result. Interestingly, if I remove the .pdf extension from a PDF file, or change the .pdf extension to a .doc extension, it lets me send the files.

I did try this on another computer that is running Windows XP with the same version of Firefox and I was able to attach and send a PDF file using AOL.com. I don't know if it is a problem isolated to my computer, or if it is something with Windows 7, but I wanted to mention that as well.

I would appreciate any help/guidance in this situation. I can still send the files using Internet Explorer, so it's not the end of the world, but if anyone has any solutions, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you very much.

Take Care, -David

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. Thanks, David

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.

When I click on a PDF, it downloads it properly, but when I click on the downloads progress icon and click on the file, it reports "Unable to open document. File type text/plain type (text/plain) is not supported". The default app for PDFs is evince as it has been for years. That worked fine until the recent major update of firefox. If I set it for the standard firefox PDF viewer, the result is still the same.

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

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.

Anytime I click on a link to a .pdf I am asked to save the document. I would like to simply view most. I have been unable to determine how to change this. I am not sure whether it is a setting in Firefox, Acrobat, or my system. In the dialogue box that asks whether I would like to open or save the file, I had checked the box indicating that the files should always be opened, but this did not happen. It kept asking whether to "open file" or "save file." Then I had a file I wanted to save, so I clicked that radio button and saved that file. Now, it will no longer allow me to open files.

Thanks for your help...
