Google Chrome like PDF inline PDF Viewer

windows
#1

Description of the issue:
Cannot copy a pdf’s URL directly from PDF Viewer.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Open an arbitrary pdf file, e.g., https://arxiv.org/pdf/1904.06652.pdf

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
The URL will be like this.
“chrome-extension://oemmndcbxxxxxx/https://arxiv.org/pdf/1904.06652.pdf

Expected result:
The URL should be the real URL.
https://arxiv.org/pdf/1904.06652.pdf

Additional Information:
I hope the behavior of pdf viewing should be the same with Google chrome. Chrome can show a direct pdf URL. Currently, it is annoying to copy the pdf link when I use Brave.

I found the same report from another people. But it was closed unfortunately.
