This can happen when the web page uses a script to show the PDF files. The PDF files cannot be accessed directly in that case what causes this error message.


What works in most cases is to use the check technology "Chromium / Browser" to monitor these PDF files:


1.Open the bookmark properties
2.Select the "Check" tab
3.Select the check technology "Chromium/Browser"
