I am running Firefox 15.0.1 under ubuntu 12.04. Clicking the download button in the viewer does nothing. This makes pdf.js unusable for me


please specify version of pdf.js


And a link to the PDF, if you can.


Using V 0.7.236
here's a link that didn't work:


Works for me on FF19. What OS are you on?
Perhaps you should try the latest dev build of PDF.js: ?


After I installed FF19 its fine, however, in FF17 (which is the currently supported version in ubuntu 12.04) it doesn't work, neither the released PDF viewer nopr the latest development version

Same problem here. Started a few days ago. Using Firefox 17.0.3 in Linux 2.6.18-348.1.1.el5 (Red Hat 4.1.2-52). Just reinstalled most recent plug-in version PDF JS 0.7.276 (in link above) and still no progress. All pdf's don't download, not ones from certain pages. Help appreciated. (I can still save pdf as, from "save link as". Only when I open a pdf in the viewer, download is non-functioning).


"Save as Link" works for me as well, except for a hit on a PDF file in google and that is really annoying!
In google, if I click "Save Link as" I get "url" as suggested file name and file type html, not the underlying PDF file.

@landersohn: Google changes their links to go through a custom url for analytics I presume. I notice the same behaviour on Chrome.


We can reproduce this same problem with any pdf using OSX + ffox 17.0.4esr + pdfjs >= 0.7.2

For now we are asking our users to stick to 0.7.1 which works for us


Fixed by #3027
