Description of the issue:
PDF files will not load into the PDF extension.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Step 1: Load Brave.
Step 2: Navigate to any page featuring a link to a PDF file.
Step 3: Click on any PDF link.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
PDF does not load. Instead I get an error message with a More Information button. The output of that More Information button is:
PDF.js v2.12.313 (build: a2ae56f39)
Message: file origin does not match viewer’s
PDF should load and be scrollable and readable.
Reproduces how often:
Every time, on every platform, including one platform I personally own and administer.
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Linux (Fedora release 36) - Brave Version 1.39.122 Chromium: 102.0.5005.115 (Official Build) (64-bit)
This behavior does not affect embedded PDFs on platforms that have their own readers and players.
This behavior does not affect any browser except Brave; I checked it with the current build of Firefox and the PDF loaded as expected.
