 Replying to [comment:17 mcs]:
 > I assume this is the code that is overriding the settings for
 `pdfjs.disableRange` when placed in `000-tor-browser.js`:

 Yep exactly, this code goes in and overwrites the preference unless it's
 been set by a user, so updating the default system preference does nothing
 in 000-tor-browser.js just gets blown away.

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

 Entirely dependent on how large the pdf is that you're trying to download,
 and how fast your circuit is.  Fortunately there is a progress bar in the
 pdf UI indicating the load progress, so it doesn't look like the browser
 is just hanging.
