--- Comment #1 from Konstantin Kolinko <> ---
There have been several threads on users@ regarding this,

[1] "PDF Download problem tomcat >= 7.0.27" started Jul 30, 2012

[2] "Tomcat 7.x and Internet Explorer Adobe Reader plugin" started Aug 21, 2012

Several notes:
1. Thus far nobody has shown any real data on what is wrong in Tomcat

Without this, no real fix can be made.
I am changing the state of this issue to NEEDINFO.

2. According to [2] the problem appears only in IE, but not in Firefox or
3. According to [1] the problem does not appear in Adobe Reader 10.

According to Abode site, Acrobat 9/Reader 9 are still supported, but their EOL
is June 26, 2013. Maybe someone has to contact their support?

4. A message that cites real request data (Jul 31)

5. If the problem is in how range requests are served,
I can say the following:

- The components that serves the response here is
Maybe someone could find a clue there.

- It is possible to disable support for range requests by setting its init
parameter "useAcceptRanges" to the value of "false". See
