    • Edge issues two requests whenever you view a PDF, this means that to we cannot send an inline pdf to a browser. This has major implications for us, can you please advise?

    • I have found this article regarding this problem:
      Unfortunately it doesn’t work as described. I cannot get my C# ASP.NET application to directly stream the PDF to a new tab in the browser (which I want).
      It means, that users are FORCED to choose another browser to have the functionality, they are used to from IE11 (p.s. in IE11 we’re using Adobe Reader, but this doesn’t work in Edge either…!!!)
      Any ideas?

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We confirmed the problem, and implemented a solution on a later build of Edge. We are resolving this issue as a duplicate of an existing internal bug report. We look forward to additional feedback you may have on how we can improve Microsoft Edge.

      Best Wishes,
