You could try downloading webview2 from VIPM. It's an up to date browser. You could make a webview2 display in the front panel and probably open a PDF with it as its chrome based. (Chrome can open pdfs in the browser window.)

you have to download the .npkg to the .vi's location, have .net sdk 6.0 (check via cmd with dotnet --info) and ms edge browser installed on your computer (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe)

The following package on VIPM worked for me. I don't remember downloading any other dependencies, but may be mistaken.
