Hmmm... we already have a meta bug for PDFium but it's not public. I will talk to the team and see how we can migrate here. Thanks for letting me know.

What is the current status of PDFium and project Mortar. I cannot find any news since the Quantum fever started, but I see "pdfium.enabled" preference in Nightly. Is there a way how can I help you test it?
