windows 10 firefox rendering

Bu showed up when using Firefox rendering on Windows 10. Bug went away when using Chrome rendering. Bug did not show up with Firefox on Windows 7.

Bug description. Website IRS Forms and instructions. Got web page with lists. Attempted to access a particular form (problem with any) - pdf format. Computer hangs waiting for form. Switched to Chrome while waiting and form immediately appeared.

The problem is with trying to get .pdf files. Firefox rendering just doesn't load them. Switching to ther rendering (IE11 or Chrome) allows me to bring up the files.

Firefox browser does not have this problem, only Firefox rendering in Avant.

Maybe put a link up with this issue, for us to try as I don't remember encountering this problem ?

An example. To get it, I added *.pdf to my list of items in Rendering Engine using IE11 (Avant browser options).

Apologies for the delay, just tried your link and it came up instantly - with - windows 10 - Firefox

Edit - I use Foxit for all PDF - I don't know it that makes any difference ??

I have the same problem with the new update (2019 b2). PDFs don't appear or download in Firefox. I use Acrobat Reader. Anyone any ideas?

Just tried the link again and it worked instantly with Foxit

Maybe install Foxit, download it, save it, then open with your Acrobat ?
