Description

Created attachment 8433201 [details]
PDF containing link which does not work in Firefox

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_7_5) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/35.0.1916.114 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open the attached PDF in Firefox. (tried with versions 29, 30, 31)
2. Click the text "Click to view Manual"


Actual results:

Nothing


Expected results:

The text is a link. The link should be followed (to http://support.feralinteractive.com/docs/en/hitmanabsolution/latest/steam/manual/). This works with Adobe Reader and in Apple Preview / Safari.

The same issue is present in Chromium/Pdfium and it looks like they have a solution: https://code.google.com/p/pdfium/issues/detail?id=6

Apologies, I was not aware of how the PDF was constructed. However, despite not being explicitly marked as a link, it certainly appears as a link to users of other major PDF readers (Abode Reader, Safari, and now Chromium). I therefore suggest that there is a bug here, in that Firefox PDF viewer behaves differently.
Reproduced on latest Nightly 20140618030215 under Win 7 64-bit. The pdf has the same behavior on Chrome.
Set as New.

This bug is no longer present in Chrome, leaving Firefox as the only major browser with this issue.
