  • I tried all the tips on the Firefox help site, but I can not even download anything. Yesterday, I was able to download and open PDF files very well. Today... No.

    While I was working on my Mac last night, I received a message that I had to download an Adobe (I think an Acrobat X Pro) update. Yes, I did. This seems to be the time when I started to have problems. Now I can't use the program uninstaller. I think that maybe that's the problem, but my ability to fix stops here.

    I am usually more discernment on updates, etc., but I was working on a project and the update flashing bothers me, so I hit Yes, not really looking at the app I was updating. Ugh. My mistake.

    Go to Firefox preferences, 'Applications' "Preview/application/pdf Documents. Click on the "Action" column and "history of (by default) use. The Adobe update apparently changed that preference to download.

  • Why not download and read .pdf files

    I never had no problem download and playback of .pdf files to what I 'upgraded' Adobe reader version 11. Now all the downloads of attempts fail because "I don't have the necessary helper or same C:\DOCUME~1\Will-o\LOCALS~1\Temp\Back channel II - betrayal of the Viet Nam - ch. 1 & 2. PDF cannot be opened, because the associated helper application does not exist. Changing the association in your preferences. What in the world is happening and how to fix it?

    Under "Tools - Applications - Adobe Acrobat Document, the I chose 'Use Adobe Reader'." However since I also have Adobe Acrobat 8.3, I tried substitution, for the reader, but which does not work either. Help, please.

    You could try the following:

    (1) change your preference for 'Preview in Firefox' and use the download button to save the file. But it's an extra step.

    (2) change your preference to "Always ask" and see if you can get the file to open it in this way.

    (3) delete the file from your application's preferences (it is sometimes damaged) and try again. Note: these are only the preferences for which applications manage what types of content, not all your Firefox preferences.

    To do this:

    (i) open your current Firefox settings (AKA Firefox profile) folder using

    Help > troubleshooting information > "view file" button.

    (ii) switch back to Firefox and the output. Your Windows Explorer window should go back to the foreground. Pause while Firefox finishing its cleanup.

    (iii) and rename the mimeTypes.rdf something like mimeTypes.old

    (iv) restart Firefox. It is likely you will default to 'Preview in Firefox' and I hope that the paths for Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat will now be correct if you choose one of those.

    A little luck?

  • AS2, Flash 8 and opening pdf files

    Hi all

    I use Flash 8, Actionscript 2, to open PDFs with a projector.

    All right, if I use 'FreeMX' and the computer has Acrobat 5, 6 and 7 is installed.

    But it does not work if the computer is equipped with Adobe Reader 8 installed - the pdf document does not open.

    No one knows this and if there is a work around? It's a bit urgent - customer's breathing down my neck here :)


    I think I have solved my problem - looks like Adobe Reader 8 uses different code to parse its command line than before.

    The path and the name that I used in my code has ' / ' as the separator in path, which worked well with Acrobat/Reader 6 and 7. But (at least here) not with Adobe Reader 8 - instead I had to convert to ' \' to make it work.

  • My laptop can not download and open online pdf files


    My computer (WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE {32 Bit}) done an update on February 27, now I can't open or download files special PDF Online.

    I tried to run the system restore point, but it does give me a DATE option that I want to restore.

    He gave me this option date March 3, 2015 only.

    Help, please!

    Thanks for posting your questions about Microsoft Community.
    To help you better could you please clarify a number of things like:
    1. you try to download a .pdf file as an attachment to an email or a Web site hyperlink?
    2. What is the default browser installed on the computer?
    3. what actually happens when you try to download\open a pdf file?
    4. What is the management software pdf documents by default (such as Adobe reader or NitroPDF) installed on the machine?

    However, assuming you are using Acrobat or Adobe Reader on a system that includes a browser, you configure automatically the browser to open PDF files in the browser window. Acrobat and Adobe Reader install the ActiveX plugin files allow you to use Internet Explorer or AOL to open PDF files.
    If an application is installed, but do not open the PDF files in the browser window, then work through the following steps to configure the browser:
    To open PDF files in a browser window, the ActiveX folder should contain the following files: AcroPDF.dll, AcroIEHelper.dll and pdfshell.dll.
    ActiveX controls must be in: program files Files\Adobe\Acrobat\ActiveX
    If one of these files is missing, then repair Acrobat or Adobe Reader by choosing Help > repair Acrobat Installation or reinstall the application.
    Make sure that you use a version of your web browser, Acrobat and Adobe Reader supports, such as Internet Explorer. Supported for Adobe Acrobat 8, Adobe Reader 8 browsers are Internet Explorer 6.0, 6.0 SP1, Internet Explorer 7.0, Firefox 1.5 or later, Mozilla 1.7 and AOL 9.

    To make sure that the Windows registry provides the information that your web browser should display PDF files, restart Windows. If the Windows registry is not updated after the installation of Acrobat, then the web browser can not find the references it needs to access the PDF files on the web.

    Reinstall Acrobat or Adobe Reader.

    To ensure that the correct information of the plug-in is added to the Windows registry, reinstall Acrobat or Adobe Reader.If you want the browser to open PDFs in a separate Acrobat window, then configure the browser to use Acrobat or Adobe Reader as a helper application. Then, when you select a PDF file in Internet Explorer or AOL, the browser opens the PDF file in an Acrobat window instead of the browser window.

    To configure the browser to use Acrobat or Adobe Reader to open PDF files:
    1. close your web browser.
    2 start Acrobat or Adobe Reader.
    3 Choose Edition > Preferences.
    4. Select Internet in the list on the left.
    5 disable the display option IN the browser, and then click OK.
    6. restart Internet Explorer or AOL.


    And there is also a possibility that the file association to open pdf files was damaged for some reason, then we will have Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader as default program and check if that helps. Please refer to:

    Note: The next time you select a link to a file PDF, the browser may prompt you to open or save the file. If you choose to open the file, then the browser opens the file in the support application that you specified. If you choose to save the file, the browser downloads the file to the hard drive.
    I hope this helps.
    Please get back to us with the required information, and we would be happy to help you.
    Kind regards.
  • I have Acrobat Standard XI and recently downloaded CD Player for a specific use. Reader became my default for open PDF files once it has been installed. How can I get Acrobat Standard to be once more my fault?

  • I have an annual subscription to Adobe export in PDF, but my computer died and I am setting up a new computer. I also need to download Adobe Reader or Acrobat to download and open the PDF files?

    I export to PDF, but can't seem to download and open the PDF files. I need to download something?

    Hi Lisa,

    To download PDF files, you have nothing else except a web browser.
    However, to open the pdf file that is downloaded, you certainly need to download Acrobat Reader: Adobe - Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Distribution

    Hi stephenf95557665,

    (1) you can simply save the file on your computer as allows you to save in the older version of the player, it is not necessary to register I your cloud of document.

    If you save the file to the document cloud, you will be able to access any system from anywhere.

    (2) If you still think earlier version users need, then they can probably uninstall the last being & reinstall the old version using this link

  • PDF files not opening not in IE11, tried using Adobe Acrobat and also DC. PDF, downloads and opens outside IE11

    Is anyone able to help!

    We have recently improved our system of IE11 company and we have a lot of problems regarding the opening of PDF files now. We use desktop computers Windows 7 64 bit and I tested on Windows 8.1 and it works fine.

    Let's go to the below URL and does preview now work (this link is in the public domain), there is a black box and the white cross where it overview PDF should be.

    Also when you click on "Download" on the same page, sometimes, a download box will appear in IE to the button saying he doesn't have to download and press 'Retry' when you press retry it downloads and the PDF opens outside the IE. This is despite the add-on Adobe reader set 'enabled '... Sometimes it will open the PDF file outside immediately. However, we really need open the PDF file to open it in Internet Explorer, so we can enter the URL. Oddly enough if you disabled and enable the Adobe PDF Reader add-on it will open in the Internet Explorer browser until you close the window of IE (However the preview still doesn't!)

    I tried to install Adobe reader DC and it worked on my machine, but then when I unrolled to others it did not work! The preview works for me and also a PDF file opens in the browser always (even after a reboot). However, when I installed this for others it was the same result do not load the preview and the opening outside the IE. The strange turn had similar results as before. I connect to PCs others and it works very well but their profile it doesn't. I have reset their server profiles, but it's still a question! As I log in machines of others and it works there seem not to be a PC problem?

    I have searched extensively on the internet and tried all kinds of clearing cache, reset Internet Explorer settings, tabprocgrowth reg, repaired the software adobe reader and adobe reader DC, closed in protection in reader mode, compatibility mode

    I am really at my wits end... someone can help please!

    It looks like this case has finally be resolved - we have installed an Adobe security update and it seems to have fixed all of the issues around this now.

  • Downloads window blank and nothing download - only for PDF files?

    FF 25, Mac Mountain Lion.

    Last week, stopped download PDF files and the downloads window is empty. Tried Safe Mode and clear memory cache, as well as Disable selectively module DownloadHelper. Nothing has worked. Acrobat plugin is not used, I've always had PDF files in Acrobat itself opening.

    It seems to affect only PDF files.

    I do not have reset FF because it's so invasive and time-consuming. Any other solution before I resort to that (or switch to Chrome)?

    In order to change the default reader for PDF files (to not to open PDF files with the internal PDF reader to Firefox), do the following:

    1. Go to Tools > Options (or Firefox > Options).
    2. In the Options window, select the Applications tab.
    3. In the Search box, type PDF. You should find Portable Document Format (PDF).
    4. On the right referring, you should find a column of Action . To select your favorite PDF reader. In order to view PDFs in Firefox, choose Preview in Firefox.

    This solve your problems? The report please come back shortly.

  • I can't open pdf files in firefox, and I tried all the solutions proposed by others. How can I reactivate pdf in firefox?

    I have recently switched to Firefox to Google Chrome, and I find that I can't open all PDFs from the web in some way in Firefox. I can't download them and open them in Adobe Reader and I can't preview them in Firefox, or I can use the plugin from Adobe. I tried to use the solutions posed by users on this site, but none of them have worked. Whenever I have an amendment to the settings to try to resolve this problem, change never allows me to view the pdf file, and the setting reverts to the previous setting after the browser is restarted. I don't like how to display the file, but I need to be be able to see a preview or I need to be able to download it.

    I use an adobe download add-on,, and I have disabled. Now, I can actually open pdf files in my browser shows a preview, or download them as I see fit. Thank you!

    But clearly, there is an error with the add-on.

  • each download will in pdf file that opens in windows media center, I can not pull up or the play .i see the file but do not know how to access the media center.hope it makes sense.

    I have media library but do not know how to open files that is downloaded.

    Media Center does not open PDF files and PDF files have nothing to do with playback of music or videos.  Somehow, downloads do not create the appropriate file types.  Where are you these downloads?  Can you give me a website?  You want to download (images, videos, music, what)?  What version of Media Center do you use?  What version of Vista are you using?  How do you download files and if you use a browser, which is the name and version of the browser?

    Thank you!
