Client download in Firefox almost impossible


#1

If you try and download in firefox it spams empty tabs with a local link to the pdf that does not work in the address bar.
In Chrome it works fine.


#2

Solution is simple. Don’t use Firefox. :grinning:


#3

Can’t reproduce - sure this isn’t some extension you’re using that breaks PDF.js?


#4

At work on Ubuntu Firefox I can’t reproduce as well. I can check if it’s an addon later.


#5

What version of Firefox you’re using? What add-ons you’re using?


#6

I just tested my addons and even after disabling them all it still happened.
Firefox 53.0.2 (32-bit) on Windows 10.
Is there anything else I can test?

It might have something to do with Firefox also being my default application to open pdf with? It’s probably a bug on their end.


#7

So disabling addons did not work but “refresh firefox” actually did.
