PDF rendering issue through PDF.js (Firefox 19 built-in PDF viewer)

    As of version 19, Firefox provides a default built-in PDF viewer (based on the javascript PDF.js library) that allows you to open PDF document within the browser, without having to install the Adobe Acrobat plugin.

    In the project I'm working on, and that's using PDFClown, the generated PDF files are not rendered correctly with this javascript PDF viewer.

    Has anyone else the same problem, and eventually more info about it? Or even a solution/workaround?

    could you please attach one of your PDF files along with a screenshot of the way it's rendered by Firefox's built-in viewer?

    thank you

    I'm experiencing the same issue using Firefox and Chrome built-in viewers using embedded fonts.
    You'll find here in attachment a sample PDF generated by your library and the simple snippet of code I used to generate it.

    I woulk like to ask to the author of this thread if this is the same issue he's experienced and if he managed to find a solution.

    Thank you
