Webviewer not reading pdf files in Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 need help

I'm storing a pdf in a container field, exporting the field contents to the desktop or temporary folder, and then using a webviewer to display the file.  This all worked until Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 (not sure which version of sierra it stopped working but it does not work with 10.12.6.).  I've tested this with Filemaker Pro 14, 15, and 16 and it's a no go with each.  I've attached a simple file that you can try to see if you get the same results that I do.


I'm wondering if Filemaker or Apple needs to fix the problem.


In the mean time can anyone suggest a work around?  I would be most grateful. Most of my clients are using Filemaker 14 on Macs.  I just tried Filemaker 14 on Windows 7 and the webviewer displays properly.


Thanks for any help,
