Issue opening PDF files

windows
bug

#1

I have windows 10, brave version 0.21.18

I need to open PDF files to study online, I love brave but for some reason it won’t let me do this.

PDFs appear blank for some reason and I don’t know how to resolve this without switching back to google chrome.


PDF support in browser like in Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge (Win10_OS)
#2

This is an ongoing problem, I want to use brave but I will switch back to chrome if this problem persists.

EDIT: I don’t understand why I haven’t got any feedback. I followed all the rules and stated my problem outright but no response…


#3

Similar experience: Brave’s PDF viewer doesn’t work.

workaround: Yep, you can certainly use other browsers, but because I frequently download and save PDF files, I skip directly to that step. I’d recommend SumatraPDF

http://www.sumatrapdfreader.org/

It’s small, fast, free, and importantly not a vector for malware.

But yes, it would be nice if Brave’s internal PDF viewer worked.

sorry for late reply, but thanks so much. I hope brave fixes it’s pdf viewer soon


#5

Seems to be an issue with Brave displaying PDF document in inline frames.

This PDF Inline frame test URL shows correctly in all other browsers that I’ve tested but not in Brave.

It’s working for me in Win 7.

It’s one of the reasons I have two browsers open at work. It’ll be nice when it’s fixed, but for now, I work around it.
