26.0.1646.0 - built-in pdf reader doesn't work

  • I can't open pdf files with the built-in reader anymore. It will display an empty page (pdf-reader-like) saying page 0 of 0. Would've posted a screenshot if that was possible. :-
    Is this a known issue? Haven't found a reference to it.

    It is, just save the image into a image host and put the link here using ![](http://link-to-the-image)

    Is this a known issue?

    Seems similar to another one already reported so i think it's know.

  • All PDF do not show up? Strange.
    On which operating system? And which PDF, may be a Link to?

    On my Windows 7 the internal PDF reader works fine.

  • I've had this same issue for a few weeks. I'm running on Windows 7. As a side note, I have Adobe Acrobat Pro X installed on my system as well.

  • I'm having major problems with viewing any pdfs too (windows 7, opera next 26.0.1656.8). I think i had a similar problem as the original poster - pdf viewer was just blank with some (all? can't remember) pdfs. I changed the options to use adobe reader and then pdfxchange viewer, but although all pdfs now work initially, if i change tab the plugin seems to crash (becomes unresponsive - can't scroll or click any buttons). Hitting refresh solves it until i change tab again.
    Annoying as i use pdfs a lot and have to keep refreshing and scrolling back to where i was in the text.

  • I also had a problem with all PDF's being blank. I then disabled Foxit Reader in opera://plugins and they now show up using the built-in viewer. I'm not sure which version this started with, but I believe it was the one where the new built-in viewer was introduced.
