Hi yudaermawan,

It appears that there is some sort of problem with your file, the directory that you are using to store the submission files, or the server itself. The reason why I think this is because when I click on the "Download this PDF file" link, I see only a blank screen. Blank screens are usually indicative of a PHP or server error in the background. I'd suggest looking at your server's error logs to see if you can get a better idea as to what the problem is. If I had to guess, I'd say this is probably a permissions issue.

I too have a similar problem, I have posted in some forums, but no response. In my case the pdf is not displaying in Firefox and IE. It shows a blank part. In my case, when I download the pdf, it is downloading and I could open it. The problem is only with the display. I asked my host provider, he said that the pdf is not compatible with firefox, it has something to do with the OJS. Please help me. It is very urgent. I have posted several times this same problem, but no response. Thanks in advance.

Yes, Finaly i find a solution, just download Mozilla 12 (don't upgrade and import from old cache and personal data from old mozilla), and PDF wil embed from your mozilla. .
