Comment:

 Replying to [comment:14 pospeselr]:
 > Unfortunately, the user_pref setting doesn't seem to stick when placed
 in the usual 000-tor-browser.js, and it gets overwritten by pdfjs
 initialization code if specified in the usual fashion (verified with an
 rbm build).

 I assume this is the code that is overriding the settings for
 `pdfjs.disableRange` when placed in `000-tor-browser.js`:
 https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-
 esr52/source/browser/extensions/pdfjs/content/PdfJs.jsm#79

 Maybe we should patch the above code instead and also add the the setting
 to `000-tor-browser.js` as a reminder that we care about the value for
 `pdfjs.disableRange`. Probably gk should decide which approach we want to
 use.

 How bad is performance when loading a large PDF with this change in place?
 I assume "time to first page display" increases significantly.
