How to re-activate the built in PDF Viewer?
Software versions: Vivaldi (the black Vivaldi) 1.8.755.3 (official build) (64-Bit) on OSX 10.12.3
I'm having a problem with PDF preview in Vivaldi.
In the past I deactivated the in built PDF viewer and nowadays I get a download/open prompt for every PDF. If I click on open the file will be opened with the OSX preview app.
In vivaldi://plugins I can see the Chromium PDF Viewer which is deactivated with the info "deactivated by company policy" or something like it - I dont really know what that means or how it happened. There is no such thing as company policy on my computer.
How can I re-activate the pdf viewer or use a a new browser plugin/extension to automatically get a preview of the PDF in a Vivaldi tab.
I hope this works and is similar on Mac:
- Open vivaldi://chrome/settings/content
- Scroll down to PDF Documents
- Disable Open PDF files in the default PDF viewer application
- Close settings
There's also same issue on Linux probably also will be in Windows in future.
The issue seem not specific to Vivaldi.
It could track back a few years back in Google Chrome. Seem un-resolved as it randomly happen in some system or any Chromium based browser.
The only "deactivated by company policy" I could find was talking about Windows Group Policy. Which of course doesn't make sense for Linux & Mac.
