Viewing PDFs in the Browser

Issue/Question

Can I view/edit a PDF in my browser?

Environment

  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Internet Explorer
  • Safari

Resolution

While most browsers will display a PDF either natively or through a plugin, it is not always displayed correctly. Additionally, many PDFs with fill-able fields are not rendered properly.

It is recommended to view PDFs in a dedicated program, such as Adobe Reader. This can be accomplished by right-clicking the link to the PDF and saving it to your computer.
