I have uploaded some pdf files to my repository. The pdfs were rendering on the day I uploaded. I was able to see them on the next day too. Today I am checking and I see the pdfs are not rendering. Is there any changes or updates on Github side?
Welcome to the community! Do you have a link to a public repository where this is happening?
Do you get any errors when attempting to view the file on GitHub.com ?
Looks like the issue is resolved. I can see the pdfs rendering today.
Fyi, I had tried from multiple devices and browsers before I raised the help request. Now I can see that I am able to see the pdfs on all of them.
Thanks for the update. Please let us know if this happens again.
(Some) PDFs have stopped rendering correctly on Github since approx 30 June 2021 - they are now displayed as a large white box.
Can you provide a link to a public repository where you are seeing this happening?
GIA/dev at master · baxterai/GIA · GitHub (various PDFs are affected by the issue).
- The error is non-deterministic (it does not occur on all PDFs, and it does not necessarily occur every time a PDF is displayed by GitHub. Some PDFs appear to be more susceptible to the error than others).
- The error can sometimes be corrected by refreshing the webpage (it may be related to a race condition bug).
- The error occurs on both Ubuntu 20.04 (latest version) and Microsoft Windows 10 (latest version).
- The error occurs on Mozilla Firefox (latest version; 90.0 64 bit), but not Google Chrome (latest version; 92.0 64-bit).
