Disable Chrome / Firefox built-in PDF viewer


Firefox and Google Chrome web browsers use built-in PDF viewers by default instead of Adobe Reader. In some situations it does not render a PDF correctly. Known issues are showing the seam on a quote drawing and formatting JobTracker labels as expected. This is a bug/limitation with the built-in PDF viewers. 

Step-by-step: Chrome

To disable Chrome's built-in PDF viewer (forcing it to use Adobe): 
1. Open Chrome and type chrome://plugins/ in the browser address bar 
2. Scroll down to find “Chrome PDF Viewer” and click Disable

Note: It is assumed that Adobe Reader is installed. If not, go to:  Get Adobe Reader (free)

Step-by-step: Firefox
