Opening http://www.rz.rwth-aachen.de/global/show_document.asp?id=aaaaaaaaaacdmoc in the integrated pdf.js viewer result in an unreadable pdf with black background. When opened in some other viewer it's displayed correctly with a light gray gradient background. Expected result: Firefox should display the pdf correctly with a light gray gradient background.

Jonathan do you own the copyright to the "reduced sampled" pdf? If so, are you okay with us using it in our test suite?
Yes, I created it myself using Inkscape. You can use it for anything you want (public domain). If you need something special for the tests (like something with useful integer dimensions or two pdfs which should look the same, but don't then please ask for it.
