FF used to render websites displaying downloadable PDF documents correctly. It no longer does. The page is mostly blank and completely unusable. I don't know what happened to Firefox, but it is no longer reliable or usable. I am attaching a small screenshot of a mostly blank page in Firefox and the same page in Safari.

I am running FF 77.0.1. This has been an issue for awhile however. In Options, under Applications/PDF, there is no Preview in Firefox option. I've tried quitting FF, renaming/moving handlers.json; but on re-opening the relevant section remains the same(action=0). I discovered about:config pdfjs.disable=false, previously it was set to true. Then in Options/Applications/PDF, "Firefox" is an option to open, and the action=3 in handlers.json, however the behavior of downloaded pdfs is the same (downloaded). (This is trying example pdfs from different sites). I've tried changing about:config security.cps.enable=false, no change. I've also seen a plugin to "fix content types" that shows up on this site, but it didn't change anything. From what I gather, action=3 should be Preview in Firefox, not Firefox, and all pdfs are being downloaded. Is there a way to fix this? Not seeing pdfs in browser is significantly annoying.

I notice this strange behaviour using my favourite WEB browser: Firefox. Using firefox plug-in to preview into browser a PDF document I notice some character set mismatch happend.

For character set mismatch I mean: page layout perfectly shown but text shown using not appropriate chars. Due to this behaviour it is not possible to understand content of page. This strange behaviour do not effect all PDF pages, but only some of them.

From the pdf plug-in I tried to download the PDF file and into pop-up window I choise to open it with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. Into Adobe Acrobat Reader DC all PDF pages are perfectly shown.

I think some "unusual" PDF setting is not perfectly interpreted by pdf plug-in

I will attach: 1) a PDF page as shown into Firefox PDF plugin 2) the same page as shown into Internet Explore PDF pluin or Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

    • - Upload images hangs, so no image is available here.

The problem is worked around setting into Firefox a different method to handle PDF file, but it is possible such information can be usefull to better design Firefox PDF plugin.

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.

Watermarks were put in by PDFill Free PDF Tools and always show up in Adobe Reader.

I never imagined that such a failure could happen until I was checking things today and saw it. Not good.

Just realised that this thing is asking about my browser. I'm writing this in Chrome but I have the latest version of Firefox.

However, if I try to set my default PDF viewer to Adobe or anything other than that, that totally works fine.

At night, my web page will be in a night mode (with a black background). I'd like to launch the embedded PDF viewer in night mode as well. Are there URL parameters to do this? Does the built-in viewer even support a night mode? I know that Acrobat supports a night mode.

Plugins: Adobe Acrobat Reader is set to "Always active" Options/Applications: PDF are set to open with Adobe Acrobat Reader (in Firefox)

Before (1 or 2 weeks ago): some PDF opened directly in the browser. For others a dialog box appeared, giving me the choice to either save or open the file. If I chose to open, it opened in the normal Adobe Reader (that's still OK, but why do they not all open in the browser?)

Now: what I described above still works with the integrated viewer (i.e. when I change settings to "Preview in Firefox"). With the Adobe plugin, PDF that opened automatically in the browser still do, for the others I don't even get the dialog box. They are just being saved and that's it. How can this be changed?

When I uncheck the option "allow pages to use their own colors..." in preferences, and view a PDF using the built-in viewer, all text in PDF documents appears to be printed twice with the default color (usually black) then printed again with my preferred color slightly shifted giving the appearance of all the text having shadows. I usually set my color preferences for pages to have a black background and a light gray text. This may be a bug.

Since Firefox 38 (not sure, might be also since 37) the native Firefox PDF Viewer pdfjs display only white text in all PDF files I open. I checked in about:config and I have the same default settings there like a colleague who has it working fine.

If I set pdfjs.disableFontFace to true it works on some PDF files but for example not on files which I generate with FPDF (nothing changed on the generation code). The font used in FPDF is Arial, so no problem there.

Any ideas?

- I cannot find how to download specific, non-consecutive pages from the PDF (example: pgs. 1,3,5). I have tried selecting the "print" button and redirecting download to my PDF program (Adobe PDF). Unfortunately, this only allows me to download consecutive pages (example: pgs. 1-5).

For the last several versions of Firefox, all attempts at PDF downloads fail. On rare occasions I can go to Save As..., get a dialogue box and save the file. But 80+% of the time it just fails and I have to go and paste the URL into Safari to get the file. Every time Ffx. upgrades I think this might get fixed, but it hasn't. I'm running AdBan and Do Not Track Me in both browsers, so that shouldn't be the issue. Please advise.
