PDF link opens a white page

Question: Hello, I don't know if it is a bug or a mistake i've made, but with portable edition when i want to follow a link which point on a pdf the browser only loads a white page.
is it possible to make it open in external program (acrobat reader) ?
Thanks for your answers.

Other plugins, like Adobe Flash and QuickTime work Ok.

Will be investigated, status is here:


Answer: Yes, confirmed.
Released QtWeb v.2.5 build 79 contains a fix that opens PDF documents by an external application.
