Description (last modified by gk)

Loading a .pdf from a file:/// URL does not show it in Tor Browser's PDF viewer. Rather, the usual dialog for unknown MIME types shows up. This does neither happen in a vanilla Firefox nor if the same .pdf is loaded via http://.

It seems I had some additional PDF-related MIME-Type which caused this which is weird. Closing this now as a local issue but we might want to reopen this ticket and develop a proper fix if people are hitting the same issue, too: There is no reason to not show the PDF in the built-in PDF-viewer if it is saved locally first.
