Comment (by cypherpunks):

 Replying to [comment:1 gk]:
 > Hm, there is no download box showing up for me. The document loads
 directly in the pdf viewer. Do you have a particular file causing this
 (maybe one I could download and then load from the desktop)?

 I could no longer reproduce the issue when I re-installed the Tor Browser,
 which is strange considering that I had already gpg authenticated (as I
 always do) the previous installation on which this problem occurred.

 Also note that it happened with ALL pdf files that I tried, not just a
 particular one. Furthermore, when normally loading pdfs from a site it
 would show up in pdf.js, but when I tested it started showing me the
 download box instead.
