I have a client who is running into an odd issue with PDFs. If he tries to download and open in Adobe Reader automatically, some PDFs fail.
For instance, when he tries to open PDFs from https://nslegislature.ca/legislative-business/bills-statutes/consolidated-public-statutes it tries to open but then Acrobat Reader gives the error "File not found".
If he right clicks and saves the file to disk, then the PDF opens fine in Reader.
I tried some other sites, and those PDFs opened fine, but it appears to be an issue with larger PDFs.
Is this a Firefox issue or a Reader issue?
I believe you are unable to open PDFs in web browser only from this particular site, as rest all are working fine?
Did you try to open PDFs from https://nslegislature.ca/legislative-business/bills-statutes/consolidated-public-statutes using a different web browser (like- Chrome, edge) than Firefox? It could be a possibility, this PDF content doesn't allow to display on web. It only works when its downloaded or saved loaclly on your system?
Let us know if it still doesn't work.
