User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/19.0 Build ID: 20130215130331 Steps to reproduce: Open a PDF file that was saved with the bookmark panel enabled by default. Example Onkyo owner's manual: http://220.127.116.11/redirect_service.cfm?type=own_manuals&file=TX-NR818_English.pdf Actual results: In Firefox 19's built-in PDF viewer, opening a PDF file that was saved with the bookmark panel view enabled does not show the bookmark panel by default. Also I was not able to collapse/expand the bookmark subsections. Expected results: Bookmark view should have shown up by default as it does with nearly every other PDF viewer. I work in customer service and I am getting calls from non-tech savvy people complaining about having to navigate a 300+ page document with their mouse wheel. Apparently they were smart enough to install Firefox but not smart enough to learn how to enable the bookmark panel manually. Please rectify this as soon as possible, I'm sure it is affecting customer service departments globally!
Created attachment 726613 [details] Sample PDF which illustrates this bug This bug affects all of the online journals of the American Mathematical Society. We have reproduced it in Windows, MacOS and Linux. For our journal article PDFs, we have set (internally in the PDF file) the default view upon opening to include the sidebar with navigation (bookmarks) visible. This default setting in the file is ignored by the Firefox PDF viewer, although it is recognized by all viewers described above. A sample journal article is attached. When opened in Adobe Reader or xpdf (pdf viewer for X11), it opens with the sidebar visible and bookmarks displayed in the sidebar. This "default view" is indicated internally in the PDF file but is ignored by the Firefox internal PDF viewer. This is one of the bugs which was reported in bug 852156, for which it was requested that we file each of the reported bugs as a separate bug report.
I think this bug is a duplicate of bug #837647.
You are right, thanks shimazu
