I can't view pdfs archived at archive.org. It doesn't seem to matter which site or the age. Here are 2 examples:

One and Two

Is anyone else able to view the PDFs archived there? And if so, what do I need to do so I can view them?

  • I have no idea, so this is a comment rather than an answer, but it's possible that archiving all of files that were affiliated with any given page could use an inordinate amount of storage. – jonsca Jul 16 '17 at 4:28

    I can view them just fine. What browser are you using? Have you tried using "Save as...", saving them locally then opening them in a desktop PDF reader? – ale Jul 16 '17 at 17:22
  • Using Firefox. It looks like it's the browser. I tried the basic browser that came with my Linux installation and it worked in the browser for that and "Save as..." worked for FF. – WebUserLearner Jul 17 '17 at 16:56
