Created attachment 751497 [details] 1877-09-21-01.pdf User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_8_3) AppleWebKit/536.29.13 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/6.0.4 Safari/536.29.13 Steps to reproduce: I am downloading single page PDF files which consist of a large page (48 x 65 cm) image prepared in ABBYY Finereader as text under image. Actual results: The document is rendered correctly but needs to be magnified by at least 400% to read the text. The rendered image appears to be too low a resolution and when magnified is not readable. Expected results: The embedded image is of sufficient resolution and renders properly in Safari/Preview or Acrobat. Attached is a subject PDF.

At 100% zoom this pdf looks the same in preview and Firefox to me. Do you have a screenshot of the two compared side by side?

(In reply to Brendan Dahl from comment #1) > At 100% zoom this pdf looks the same in preview and Firefox to me. Do you > have a screenshot of the two compared side by side? The two attachments are firefox and safari respectively at about 350% zoom. At 100% zoom the problem is not apparent. I appears that firefox zooms by magnifying the 100% zoom rather than by resampling the downloaded image.
My attachments got deleted, not sure why!?
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:26.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/26.0 Using latest Nightly (20130917030214), the document at 400% zoom looks very much alike with the one provided by Safari. Could you please try too and confirm? The Nightly build is available at: http://nightly.mozilla.org/
Using Firefox Nightly (2013-09-17) this problem appears to be resolved. Thank you very much. Note the onscreen magnification menu only allows selection of up to 200%, but using the '+' I increased the magnification to 350% and the resolution remained clear. Note the original url that illustrated the problem has changed. Now at http://mvtm.ca/mvtm/?page_id=2759

Thank you for your answer. Indeed zoom picker only allows up to 200% zoom, but for zoom in/out the +/- buttons or the Command+/Command- or Command + mouse scroll can also be used.
