Remove muPDF and switch xpdf for better security

Remove muPDF and switch xpdf:

  • It has better usability like finding page number , showing scrolling bar , opening file from within the pdf…etc
  • It has default firejail sandboxing profiles which can be even viewed using firetools
  • mupdf has multiple security issues found inside it.

Note: xpdf is DE free and doesnt depend on particular one.

Xpdf has had plenty of security vulnerabilities too. Mupdf also has a firejail profile. There is even a seccomp patch it can be used with.

I don’t see why it should be switched.

Not intigrated with firetools.
