    I completely missed.
    Actually it is not safe at the moment.

    I will create a safe one in the next days.

    It worked for me, with :
    Code:
     firefox --version
    Mozilla Firefox 127.0
    For privacy I've only included the top portion.

    My firefox is from the PPA that I linked earlier.

    EDIT: If you need me to delete that screenshot just let me know ASAP.

    Re: Firefox and Github - Problem rendering PDF

    Therefore it has something to do with my version of Firefox.
    Also, I am using Pop Os based on Ubuntu 22.04.

    Maybe the solution is checking it again when I will update Pop Os.
    The strange aspect is that I could open the PDF until a couple of weeks ago.


    p.s.:
    yes, please remove the PDF attached
    I had removed some personal data from that PDF before opening the repo (even though they were still in the LaTeX code)

    You could also try running firefox from the directly downloaded .tar.bz from Mozilla, extracting that and using the executable in the extracted archive.
    backup the hidden .mozilla folder in your home first, just in case.

    I have been using firefox this way since the start of 22.04 when snaps took over from the .deb install; it has worked without fault since then.

    I need to specify that the pdf is not possible to open the online version.

    In case it is downloaded, Firefox opens it.

    It was Not the PDF itself but a snapshot only....Removed and all set.

    EDIT: If you can't open any PDF files with the built-in PDF viewer, a Firefox extension could be the cause. You can disable all of your extensions, to see if one of them was the problem.

    Just had the same problem on Firefox 112 with Ubuntu 20.04 (PDFs were not rendering anymore on GitHub).
    Upgrading it to 126 solved the problem.

    I will try and update you, thanks!

    p.s.: I meant snapshot attached, sorry for my lack of proper jargon.
