Subject [users@httpd] Refresh issue displaying first page of PDF?
Date Mon, 12 Jul 2010 15:58:22 GMT
Hi everyone,
I am running apache HTTPD 2.2.14 on CentOS.
We have recently encountered an issue displaying some pdfs served by apache.
The first page will show up, but the text and content will not be visible.
If I scroll to page 2, the information will be visible and then scrolling
back up shows the pdf as normal.  We can't figure out what is going on with
these pdfs.

The ones I have seen so far are around 500k so it could be size related.
The documents have not exhibited this behavior when served from tomcat.
I don't see any information in error_log when the pdfs are accessed.

Please let me know if you have any ideas of what could be going on.

This behavior has been observed in both IE and Firefox.

BAD pdf example two:

top right but nothing else

GOOD pdf example:

Thanks for any clues what could be going on or who else we might ask.
