Link to a page in PDF - not working on mobile

I have a client trying to create specific page links to a PDF online using "URL#page=25" . the issue is the link works on desktop and not mobile, Looking through these forums I found this issue is because of the "=" sign.

Example:

http://cancer.ucsf.edu/_docs/UCSFCancerCenter_ASH2018_Brochure.pdf#page=25

Works on desktop, on chrome and firefox but NOT on mobile

http://cancer.ucsf.edu/_docs/UCSFCancerCenter_ASH2018_Brochure.pdf#page25

Works on mobile but NOT desktop

if you dont include the "=" sign at the end both mobile browsers support this.

is this a bug ? is there an alternate method to link to specific pages ?

The PDF Open Parameters are only supported by Adobe software, and only when the file is opened in a browser, using Adobe's plugin.

It's not likely to work in any other situation, although other plugins might have their own syntax (as you seem to have discovered) to achieve it.
