PDFs Download instead of displaying when in website with frames


When I try to view a page that has a PDF in one of it’s frames, it gives me the save dialog instead of displaying.

I seem to recall having similar problems in the past on other browsers, but I don’t see an obvious way to get to the settings of either the pdf viewer extension (the default one that came with the browser) or the browser itself to sort this out.
My Version info:

Brave: 0.22.13
rev: a8cfb160479f1d00d0769368eb440030182bb83b
Muon: 5.1.2
OS Release: 6.3.9600
Update Channel: Release
OS Architecture: x64
OS Platform: Microsoft Windows
Node.js: 7.9.0
Brave Sync: v1.4.2
libchromiumcontent: 65.0.3325.181

I’m on Windows 8.1



I can’t be the only one who has had this problem. I’m sure it’s an easy enough fix if someone knows where to point me.


Does anybody have anything on this?
