No click event at all. Expected results: Links should work as Internet Explorer with Adobe Reader handles them as expected.
It’s not a link in PDF.js, Okular, Evince. Probably duplicate of bug 793804.

Duplicate of bug: 793804
I do not think this is duplicate of bug 793804. The urls in sample PDFs which I showed in #c0 are recognized as the links by Adobe Reader on IE. And I am not 100% sure if all those PDFs are made from MS WORD.
And the urls in sample PDFs which I showed are recognized as the links by Chrome PDF Viewer on Google Chrome.
Although those PDFs are not made by Microsoft Word, it's common that they don't contain the URL annotation for those URLs. Perhaps Adobe Reader and Chrome PDF Viewer are converting a mere text string to a link if it looks like a URL. TextLink add-on worked because PDF.js converts a PDF to an HTML. https://addons.mozilla.org/ja/firefox/addon/text-link/
