No 2-page with cover view for PDF online?

I just worked a really long time to get a large document into a pdf format that is 2-up with cover (so the spreads read as spreads). Only to find out that once our IT team put it on our website, the pdf reverts to 1-up when viewed with the Chrome browser.Although there is a hidden option to view 2-up, in Chrome there isn't an option to view in 2-up with cover so all the page spreads are completely useless. Firefox also ignores the view specifications, but in Firefox you can (if you somehow know there's another way to view the file) select view even or odd spreads (why would anyone go to this trouble??). So maddening. 

 

Is there anyway to "lock" the view so that the browser doesn't modify it?

This was simpler years ago when Adobe's app was used by all browsers. But now Google make the PDF viewer in Chrome, Microsoft make the PDF viewer in Edge, Apple make the PDF viewer in Safari, and so on. The problem is, none of them care very much about the fine details that Adobe put so much time into making work. So we are stuck with mostly losing the nice stuff.  No way to "lock" the view in one that the browser doesn't even understand.

When you have created the document in InDesign you can export it with spreads.
