The StructureClone function is a part of the PDF.js library, and it is used to clone a structure tree node of a PDF document. If this function is not working in the Firefox browser, it could be due to various reasons. Here are some possible causes and solutions:

  1. Outdated PDF.js Version: Ensure that you are using an up-to-date version of the PDF.js library. Older versions might have compatibility issues with certain browsers.

  2. Browser Compatibility: Confirm that the version of Firefox you are using is compatible with the PDF.js library. Some features or functions might behave differently or not work as expected in specific browser versions.

  3. Check for Errors: Open the developer console in Firefox (press F12 or right-click and select "Inspect Element") and check for any error messages related to PDF.js. Any error messages or warnings might provide clues about what's causing the issue.

  4. Library Initialization: Ensure that the PDF.js library is properly initialized before using the StructureClone function. The library needs to be properly loaded and initialized before you can use its functions.

  5. PDF Document Structure: The StructureClone function requires a properly structured PDF document with a valid structure tree. If the PDF document does not have a valid structure tree or if it's missing certain elements, the function might not work as expected.

  6. Browser Extensions: Some browser extensions or plugins might interfere with the PDF.js library, causing unexpected behavior. Try disabling browser extensions and see if the issue persists.

  7. Bug in PDF.js Library: It's possible that there might be a bug or issue with the PDF.js library itself. Check the PDF.js issue tracker or forums to see if others have reported a similar problem or if there's a known workaround.

  8. Alternative Approaches: If the StructureClone function continues to be problematic in Firefox, consider using alternative methods or approaches for your specific use case within the PDF.js library or exploring other PDF libraries that might better suit your needs.

  9. Test in Other Browsers: Test the StructureClone function in other browsers, such as Chrome or Edge, to see if the issue is specific to Firefox or if it's a general problem across multiple browsers.

Remember that the PDF.js library is actively maintained, and its behavior might change with updates. Always refer to the official documentation and release notes for the library, and stay up-to-date with the latest changes and fixes. If you encounter a specific issue with the library, consider reporting it to the PDF.js community to get support and assistance.
