PDF files in Container Fields are not displaying

After importing a PDF file to a Container Field in FM16 on Server 16, the PDF does not show up at all...completely blank.  It works on FM Pro 16 on Windows, and on FMGo 16 on the iPad, but not on FM Pro 16 on Mac.  The file is there, but putting it on a layout for view - nothing.  This worked in FM15 and Server15.  The PDF is created by FileMaker, and when exporting the content from the Container Field it can be viewed in Acrobat, but when viewed in FM16/Server 16 the field is blank.

 

We have multiple customers in production who rely on this feature, so this is critical.  We cannot deploy FM16 until this issue is addressed.
