I can't download a PDF file from the web in my downloads folder

Since I've done the new update on firefox (8-14?) I can't download a PDF of a website in my downloads folder. When I choose to display a pdf file in a window, I get a blank window with the urlxxxx. PDF in the top... but a window empty. It is a change in the functioning of my browser since the update... I changed nothing on the preferences or anything
I am able to download the pdf files in my download of safari folder, but really want to change all my favorites etc. from firefox to start to use safari. Am on a Mac OS 10.7.4
Thank you

  • problem with opening pdf file of the web browser

    I have Acrobat Pro ver 6 and Adobe Reader 9.1 on a computer.  When my user tries to open a pdf file from the web as it gets the following error message:

    "Adobe Acrobat/Reader that not running to view the PDF files in a WEb browser.  ADBE Acrobat/Reader version 8 or 9 is required.  Quit and try again. »

    What also happens is that Acrobat Pro 6 worm opens and nothing is there.

    I don't know why he received this message from Reader 9.1 is installed.

    One can shed some light on this for me.

    This user must have Acrobat and Reader on its system.  I understand that there are problems with having both.

    It has also set up so that any PDF opens using Reader 9.1.

    Thank you

    Configuration of your PC drive by default for embedded PDFs has become confused, because of multiple solutions of Adobe PDF documents installed on a PC.

    Solution 1:

    Go to start > run

    Type regedit, and then click OK.

    Navigate to the following key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Software\Adobe\Acrobat\Exe

    Make sure that the correct default data value is set to the path where are installed the Adobe Reader or Acrobat.

    The default installation values are:

    "C:\Program 9.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe Adobe.

    or

    "C:\Program Files\adobe\acrobat 6.0\acrobat\Acrobat.exe" (not sure of this path.  Make sure that on your PC)

    If Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat is installed.

    Solution 2:

    Configure the browser to use Acrobat or Adobe Reader as a helper application.

    If you use Firefox to browse the web, you can change this setting in Firefox by clicking on:

    Tools > Options

    Click on the "Applications" tab

    The first item in the list should be "Adobe Acrobat Document".  In the Action list, click the drop-down arrow and select the application you want to read a PDF file in the web browser.  Click OK and you should be done.

    If you use Internet Explorer to view a PDF file, try the steps below.

    After you configure Acrobat or Adobe Reader as a helper application, the browser starts the helper application in a separate window and displays PDF files within this window. Acrobat and Adobe Reader both include a preference that allows you to specify the Acrobat or Adobe Reader as a helper application.

    To configure Acrobat or Adobe Reader as a helper application:
    Start Acrobat or Adobe Reader.
    Choose Edition > Preferences.
    Select Internet on the left.
    Deselect Display PDF in browser using [Acrobat application], and then click OK.
    Quit Acrobat or Adobe Reader.
    The next time you select a link to a PDF file in the browser, a dialog box asking what you want to do with the file. If you select open, the browser opens the PDF file in Acrobat or Adobe Reader (request for assistance); If you select save it on the disk, the browser saves the PDF file on your hard drive.

    Nothing in the Windows or Program Files and files their subfolders should be left alone.  You won't earn a significant amount of disk space, and you may cause to yourself untold trouble sleeping herein.  Use instead the provided Windows Disk Cleanup.  You can get to it by clicking on start-> computer, then click on the C: drive and click Properties.  On the general tab, you will see disk cleanup.  Use it and you will be safe (and not sorry).  Everything you personally placed on the computer can always be removed of course as long as you do not try to remove installed manually the software (use the programs and features in the control panel for this).

    I hope this helps.  Good luck.

  • I can't print a PDF file in a web page to my network printer

    If I try to print a PDF page in the browser, it does not work. Nothing happens at all. Print poster preview a blank page. I have to save the page (s) in PDF format and print from Acrobat 9. All other web pages print ok. Very strange.

    The PDF embedded in the page (similar to how a Flash animation can be incorporated into a page) or is the PDF file displayed in the window is full?

    If the PDF file has the full window, you should probably use the print provided by Adobe Reader icon. In the version I have, it appears in a toolbar when I float my the mouse pointer over the center of the document about 80% of the way to the bottom of the window. Not as convenient as the previous versions.

    Hello

    When you click a link to a PDF on a web page, Apple integrated PDF Viewer displays the PDF document in Safari.  However, there is no other choice 'Open in Adobe Reader' when you press the share icon on the right side of the top toolbar of Safari.

    1. tap on the PDF document to display another bar below the top tool bar.

    2. tap on 'Open in Adobe Reader' (if indicated) or ' Open in...» ».

    3. Select "Copy of Adobe Acrobat" in the menu that appears.

  • File extension is missing when you download files from the web

    I just got a new PC with preinstalled Windows7. From day one, I have the problem that when I download files from the internet while you have no extension, so when I try to run them, told me that they do not have an associated program. I then rename and add the missing extension and all is well. But it's very annoying to have to do every time :(

    I come home from work and now everything works fine - even my webcam which worked yesterday either. Just shows how much it means to close and start fee in time ;)

    Seems that my problem has healed itself, but thanks for the help that was offered to me.
