Description of the issue:
Brave PDF viewer isn’t showing in Extensions.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Go to chrome://extensions/ (chrome: or brave:, it shows both in the URL randomly)
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
It only shows the extensions I have personally downloaded and installed.
Should show all the extensions.
Reproduces how often:
Every time I try it.
“about:brave” doesn’t work and never has for me. If I check through my OS’s file explorer, the application version is 22.214.171.124
Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
I don’t know.
Two reasons I would like to disable the PDF viewer extension:
When I open a PDF and I want to copy the URL, I don’t want to have to search for it at the end of address bar after a long string of characters belonging to the PDF Viewer extension (“chrome-extension://oemmndcbldboiebfnladdacbdfmadadm/”). This is cumbersome. The URL of the PDF file should be clearly visible and copiable.
The PDF Viewer doesn’t have smooth, stop-less zooming via pinching gestures in the trackpad. I am used to zooming in and out smoothly in order to read documents. This doesn’t work when the extension has to set the zoom to a specific % value that jumps in 10-20-30% intervals.
When zoomed in, the letters look a bit blocky and not smooth. Compared to other browsers at the same zoom level (same zoom level compared with words displaying in the same size, and side by side on the screen).
Is it possible to disable this extension? Can PDFs be viewed without it?
