Stops ECCC from downloading PDFs when they can be opened in the browser. Also fixes a bug during submission.
This add-on's primary purpose is to let your browser display ECCC PDFs instead of being forced to download them. As of version 2.0, it has a secondary purpose, fixing a bug in the submission page. More details are given below. The add-on kicks in when the user requests a report from ECCC (i.e. when the user goes to any URL of the form https://eccc.weizmann.ac.il/report/*/download/). The add-on then intercepts the response from the server, which asks the browser to download a pdf file, and changes it so that the browser is now requested to open the pdf file. Version 2.0 Update: There was a bug in the submission process that caused you to restart your submission. The extension now fixes that bug to the best of my knowledge.
