If a site cannot let you see the PDF without a plugin -- just using the built-in viewer -- then you may not be able to view that site's PDFs in a tab. Hi there,. I'm unable to view PDFs in Firefox esr using either the built in viewer or Acrobat Reader. When I click on a link containing a PDF. Please uninstall Firefox. Then Delete the Mozilla Firefox Folders in C:\Program Files and C:\Program Files(x86) Then restart system. Then run.

Clicking a link to nbafinals.info will open a new tab that immediately closes, leaving and Adobe Acrobat X Standard nbafinals.info in-browser just fine, with no problems . . Isn't the internal PDF Viewer able to show PDF files as well?. I'm trying to set up firefox so that I can view PDFs in the browser instead of downloading them and Use Media Creation Tool to update, or not. This is actually a solution to a PDF Problem - Read On. Had a situation where I experienced Firefox was not able to open, or download for that.
Thank you again! Thank you, Pkshadow.
I had to use the link for the newer version of Firefox 57 , and I did select the Adobe Acrobat DC default option, but it didn't fix my viewing problem. Thank you, also, jscher I have only been dealing with one site so far. It's a Thinkific online course site that I use to create courses, and I have always been able to open and view PDF files on it via Firefox until yesterday.
Firefox did updates on my laptop yesterday or the day before, and I'm wondering if that could be part of the problem. Does either of you know if there's a simple way to return to or reset the Firefox built-in default viewer?
Perhaps that's what I just tried with Pkshadow's suggestion above? Obviously, I'm not Tech savvy! Modified January 10, at 7: The only thing that I changed a few days ago were my security settings on Firefox to try to prevent sites from tracking me all over the Internet. I undid those security changes today, but it didn't fix the PDF viewing problem.
I'm wondering if Firefox updates could possibly have messed something up, but if so, I'm sure there would be other users having the same problem. Thank you, jscher!
I will try that when I get home from running errands and let you know if it fixed the problem. Change it from "Preview in Firefox" to. No, then it just downloads the file.
Thank you for researching this issue, sludgex. Firefox renders the PDF as a canvas with an invisible text layer.
