Cannot properly view PDFs


When clicking on PDFs in the OneDrive & SharePoint for Confluence folder macro, I get an error that the PDF was blocked by my browser (Happens in Edge and Chrome).  I tried setting Edge as the default PDF viewer and it still happens.  However, we discovered if you right-click on the PDF and select "Open in new tab" it works fine. You can even just CTRL+CLICK. This is extremely odd since the plugin opens clicks in a new tab by default.

Is this a bug with the plugin? Is there a fix?

I would suggest submitting an issue to the vendor It sounds like their app is triggering some browser security that is preventing the pop-up.
