Circular attachments do not display correctly

Firefox Version 11 introduced a new mechanism to display PDF files using Javascript. This is not compatible with CCAMLR circulars and results in the text being displayed as elongated characters across the page.

As an alternative to using the built-in PDF Viewer, you can use a PDF reader plugin like Adobe Reader, Nitro PDF Reader or Sumatra PDF Adobe Reader, MozPlugger, or KParts plugin

To change from using the built-in PDF viewer to your PDF reader plugin:

  1. At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button and then select Options
  2. Select the 'Applications' panel.
  3. Select 'Portable Document Format (PDF)' from the Content Type list.
  4. Click on the drop-down arrow in the Action column and select 'Use Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox)' or your particular PDF reader plugin (if not Adobe Acrobat).
