    This happens for every bloody PDF I find. It's irritating because I can't read anything!

    I'm unlikely to be able to help myself, but what device are you using?

    I downloaded it, and it opened in Microsoft Edge, and it worked fine. Bit inconvenient but at least it works! Thank you.

    The viewer addon should work if just switching to adobe doesnt. I tend to just fumble around till I get a solution rather than worry about the detail.

    What sort of "legacy PDF" are you actually on about? It's a standardised format...

    Christ on a bike, if it ain't working in Canary, that's because it's unstable. The whole point of Canary is for live testing. They're not removing "legacy" PDF support (which is a load of codswallop in itself). Shame on you.
