Well avast doesn't differentiate between files, it just scans content and alert to infection, are you getting any alerts ?
If so What ?

What are the symptoms, can't search for pdfs (errors, redirects, etc.), can't open pdfs on-line (again errors, etc.) ?
Personally I wouldn't recommend opening pdfs on-line, download and view off-line.

Have (or did) you another Anti-Virus installed in this system, if so what was it and how did you get rid of it ?

What is your firewall ?
What other security based software do you have installed ?
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.2.6003 (build 22.2.7013.717) UI 1.0.697/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security
