After contacting confluence support it seems to be a bug and now is awaiting a fix https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-27305

Hi,

May I know what is the version of Confluence you are running? As it seems to have a known issue with older versions of Confluence.

Thanks in advance.

The PDF is displayed through flash. You just have to install flash player in IE.

We are using Confluence 4.2.2, we do have flash installed in IE.
