I use Chrome and Firefox to view PDFs online almost every single day. However, from yesterday I noticed that PDFs cannot be opened in both of them. The only browser can open a PDF document online is Safari.
This is the error that I got from Firefox when trying to open PDFs:
[18:56:30.824] Error: Bad end offset: 940 @ resource://pdf.js/build/pdf.worker.js:126
I did an experiment by trying to open PDFs from "Google filetype:pdf". The result shows that the above situation happens on almost every PDF document (over 99%).
Below are my configurations:
- OS: Mac OS X Mountain Lion.
- Firefox: Firefox 25.0.1
- Chrome: Chrome 31.0.1650.63
- Installed PDF Reader/plugins: The built-in Apple Preview. No other PDF readers or plugins.
Does anyone encounter the same problem? Is there any solutions to address this?
