Some of the content appears to be missing when I view a content guide (PDF) using Firefox. How can I fix this?

Firefox introduced a built-in PDF viewer in release 19 and this viewer is selected by default and may cause issues when viewing PDFs from Firefox. To correct this you will need to change the Content Type for PDFs to default to Adobe Reader.

To do this, from Firefox, go to Preferences > Applications. Search or scroll to the Portable Document Format (PDF) content type and change Action to Use Adobe Reader (default).
