Ouch! We can't load the PDF error message

I have the problem that I can no longer view or open already uploaded or newly uploaded PDFs. There is always the error message "Ouch! We can't load the PDF error message ". I've seen that this problem has already been asked once or twice, but I haven't found a solution anywhere. I'm working with Confluence version 6.15.6.

What I have already tried: Other browsers and refresh the browser.
Unfortunately nothing worked.

This is the workaround that consistently works for our team.

  1. In the issue, scroll down to History tab.
  2. Find the entry where the PDF was attached. 
  3. Click that link which successfully downloads the PDF.
  4. You can then scroll back up to the attachment and click to successfully view in hte browser if preferred.
  5. 🍻
