Steps to reproduce

When in edge and I click on a link with a PDF it looks like it downloads the PDF into the viewer but does not display it. If I save it and then open it with Adobe it sjhows up fine.
This does not happen all the time, some pdf’s show up fine.
I never have this issue in Explorer 11 just Edge

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. After thorough testing, we are unable to reproduce this problem in Edge. Please update this case when you can provide a link to a sample PDF which has this problem.

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing so many updates. This does not appear to be exclusively an Edge issue, despite that it is only happening in Edge. Please follow the CSS escalation process to engage MS support (GES, General Escalation Service) and file a servicing request.
