Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:27.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/27.0 Iceweasel/27.0a2 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20131115004004

Steps to reproduce:

Browsed a PDF


Actual results:

Got 'this page might not display properly" at top, but no extra button to find out why.


Expected results:

Without such a button, Firefox seems haughty, not divulging information to the user...

Note we are talking about regular users, not ones who want to learn how to debug.
We plan to change the bar to show when there are forms in bug 926254, but beyond that there are too many possibilities for custom error messages that would need to be translated.
