Joomla! PDF not working in IE8


The usual symptom is that the pop-up window is empty. Go to Joomla Documentation -- Follow the steps and add the highlighted code displayed below into the respective PHP file. This will take care of the PDF display problem in IE8.

This works like a charm as well as the upper fix but it only modifies one file:

Go into "libraries\joomla\environment\response.php" at line 201, and you will find this code is listed:

JResponse::setHeader( 'Cache-Control', 'no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0', false );

Replace the above with these two lines (you can just comment it out using //):

JResponse::setHeader( 'Cache-Control', 'no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate', true );
=JResponse::setHeader( 'Cache-Control', 'post-check=0, pre-check=0', false );
