Uploaded pdf document doesn't open in Chrome

Post by iburgess » 2019-07-19 15:40

I have a document (PDF) upload in a table, that saves the document (renamed) on the server and can be opened subsequently by clicking on the icon.

In Firefox, the PDF opens in a new tab without issue. However, in Chrome, a new tab opens with the correct URL but the tab contents are blank. If you copy and paste the URL to another tab in Chrome, then it displays.

Any thoughts?

I think the behaviour is browser- and even browser-settings specific per user/profile.

You should check your specific setting for .pdf files in your chrome browser setting. Usually chrome exactly handles files as configured, for example...

show within browser
OR download and save
OR download and open with defined application
OR download and open with OSs' default application.

I remember there are special settings for .pdf in Chrome.

Hope this helps!
