Can't open US Gov Pacer pdf files

The limited Adobe Reader in the Playbook won't open actual case files in the US Court Pacer system.  Searching Pacer FAQs gave some ideas to change some settings, but I cannot find any way to adjust anything in the toy Reader that came with the Playbook.  What a disappointing effort by a respected software producer.  Any one know of a work-around to make this work?  Hopefully someone will port a good substitue in the near future.

I have run into something similar when people using Kaspersky or other anti-virus try to open PDF email attachment. Somehow the AV screws up the PDF form's headers. Try disabling the AV before opening the client-side email software such as OUTLOOK or webmail. Note: You probably can't recover the corrupted files you already opened in your INBOX.
Can you post a link to the original and corrupted PDF?

  • Adobe Reader can not open thousands of vital PDF files for the company I work for.

    Adobe Reader can open every PDF file on our server except for the many files that were received by one company. The coding is corrupt and I have not found a solution yet on how to decode it in order for it to open properly.
    I have looked into using uudecode but the online service it provided didn't seem to recognize the code I was putting in.
    The coding to these PDF files looks like this: 
    From what I have seen all of the working files are much shorter and the coding is a lot more organized and starts with %PDF
    If anyone can help me decode it or somehow restore it without receiving the file from the original sender, that would be ideal. Any other suggestions are much appreciated.
    Thank you!

    Your analysis is good. All working PDFs will start %PDF. These files may be
    * encoded
    * compressed
    * damaged in transit
    * destroyed by malware
    * not a PDF but mislabelled
    The format is certainly not uuencode/uudecode nor anything I've seen before. I think you need to contact the senders. If they say there isn't a problem, send a file back and ask if it works for them, because that will check for damage etc. If they CAN open it, they have some special tools or procedures and need to share them with you.

  • Can't open attahcments within linked pdf files on websites

    I cannot open files embedded in a pdf file when I click on them as they appear on a webpage. I am trying to open pdfs embedded in a pdf document at http://www.surfsidebeach.org/agenda-2013.html. None of the embedded pdfs will open. They will, however, open in Internet Explorer. Is there a fix for this?

    This looks like a limitation of Firefox's built-in PDF viewer. To switch to Adobe's viewer (or the other viewer of your choice), see the steps in this article: [[How to disable the built-in PDF viewer and use another viewer]]. Does that work?

  • Hi... I would like to purchase a Tablet Sony Xperia Z 2 10.1 (the last one of the Z series) and I was told that Adobe does not support Sony anymore.... I need to be able to open and read Adobe PDF files and I would like to know if this tablet can still us

    Hi... I would like to purchase a Tablet Sony Xperia Z 2 10.1 (the last one of the Z series) and I was told that Adobe does not support Sony anymore.... I need to be able to open and read Adobe PDF files and I would like to know if this tablet can still use Flash Player...
    Is there anyo who can help me with this? I asked in the shop and I was told "yes of course" , but when I contacted Sony directly I was advised to check with Adobe as apparently in the recent months Adobe and Sony haven't been getting along anymore...

    You may be mixing up two entirely different Adobe products.
    1. Adobe Flash Player. Needed to view web pages designed with Flash. Not needed to view PDF files. Not available for Android (not just Sony).
    2. Adobe Reader. Reads PDF files. However, the Android can also read most PDF files without needing Adobe Reader.

  • AdobeAcrobat/Reader that is running can not be used to view PDF Files in Web Browser...what do I need to do to fix this..

    I just got Windows 7 and have been having problems since loading it. Most of my drivers only go to Vista and don't recognize 7.
    I have trying to download some manuals from their website
    and keep getting this message; Adobe Acrobat/reader that is running can not be used to view PDF files in Web Browser.

    Could I suggest a workaround for PDFs until a solution is posted? Open them directly in the Adobe application rather than in a browser tab.
    In your Adobe application(s), go to:
    Edit > Preferences > Internet
    Then uncheck "Display PDF in browser"
    (There are very few sites where having PDF integrated is really beneficial.)

  • Reader 9.2 - "can not be used to view PDF files in a web browser"

    Hello,
    I recently deployed Adobe 9.2 within our organization. I used the Adobe Customization Wizard 9 to transform the install set, and selected the "Display PDF in Browser" option as default.
    When opening a PDF linked from a web URL, we get the message: "The Adobe Acrobat/Reader that is running can not be used to view PDF files in a Web Browser. Adobe Acrobat/Reader version 8 or 9 is required. Please exit and try again." This occurs under IE8 and IE6, in both Windows XP SP2 and Windows 7.
    If I launch Adobe Reader and unselect "Display PDF in Browser" in preferences, PDFs open normally.

    I think I have discovered the answer to my own question!
    I have disabled Adobe Reader plug-in, and can now see PDFs in Chrome.
    (Steps: Chrome Menu, Settings option, Click Advanced Settings link, then Content Settings button, then select Disable Individual Plug-Ins, and a list of plug-ins is offered to enable or disable).
    I then get a different result depending on whether or not Chrome PDF viewer is enabled - with it enabled I see the PDF document in Chrome, or with it disabled then the option is offered to download it, but either way I can get it it via Chrome without having to run Internet explorer in another browser window.

  • Adobe 9.1.3 and FireFox 3.5.1+ "...can not be used to view PDF files in a Web Browser"

    This is the issue but I'm not sure there is a resolution:
    Firefox:  Version 3.5.1
    Adobe: Version 9.1.3
    When navigating the web, click a URL that opens a PDF inside the browser and you get an error * "The Adobe Acrobat/Reader that is
    running can not be used to view PDF files in a Web Browser".  Please exit Adobe Acrobat/Reader and exit your Web Browser and try again".  I did read a post that doing a "repair" from the Adobe Reader application should fix this, they also reference a few registry keys to check becuase the post states it's lost the application path to Adobe version X.  I don't necessarily buy that "fix" and here are my details below.
    In FireFox if you navigate to Tools > Options > Applications > Adobe Acrobat Document
    You're given choices:
    Always ask:  DOES NOT WORK, produces afore mentioned error *
    Save File:  Works, saves the file to a directory on your PC
    Use Adobe Reader 9.1 (defau...:  Works, opens your PDF's outside of your web browser
    Use Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox):  DOES NOT WORK, produces afore mentioned error *
    Use other...:
    IE seems to just work as expected.
    If you open Adobe Reader > Edit > Preferences > Internet > Check "Display PDF in browser" - DOES NOT WORK, produces afore mentioned error *
    This would seem to be an Adobe error rather than a FireFox web browser problems since FireFox does seem to know the correct path although I suppose you can't rule out that this is a FireFox problem since 2 out of the 4 PDF open options DON'T WORK.
    Any thoughts on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
    Other information:
    Adobe 8.1.5 works perfectly with FF 3.5.1+ when opening PDF's in the web browser, we also had no problems with previous versions either.
    MSI push via Active Directory from Adobe 8.1.5 upgrade to Licensed Distribution I signed up for, Adobe 9.1.3 which was upgraded from 9.1.0, to 9.1.2, to 9.1.3 via an MSP patch.
    Operating system:  Windows XP SP 2, plenty of RAM, plenty of Drive
    IE version this works with the new version of Adobe 9.1.3 is version 7 (7.0.5730.13)
    Our FireFox MSI's come from Front Motions website and as far as I know we've never had problems with their MSI's, also tried the new release of FF 3.5.2 from their website.
    I think that about covers it.  Anyone else experiencing the same problems or have a patch?

    After troublshooting this for the entire day today the issue seems to be a MIME problem.
    If everything is woking perfectly, in Tools > Options > Applications...
    You should see 4 or more things related to Adobe like "Adobe Acrobat Forms Document", etc.  If you don't see at least 4 MIME entries either your Adobe installation is hosed or your FF installation is hosed.  I haven't figured out which is causing the issue.
    What I did was remaster my patches from my original Adobe 9.1.0 MSI with the two updates via the command line in the directories with the source files.  On the 9.1.0 original file I first remastered my MST transform with the Adobe MST utility.  I then applied my patches.
    msiexec /a AcroRead.msi /p AdbeRdrUpd912_all_incr.msp
    msiexec /a AcroRead.msi /p AdbeRdrUpd913_all_incr.msp
    I then uploaded that to my network share, unlinked my group policy, made a new group policy, added a batch file to delete adobe.com from program file and the desktop on system startup even though my MST was supposed to take care of that - it's not a perfect world is it?  :-)
    I then reapplied my GPO's for both FireFox 3.5.2 and Adobe 9.1.3, I checked to make sure the MIME extensions were there and they were.  You might have to go into your Adobe Preferences and select that open in browser setting depending on what happens or adjust your MIME settings in FireFox's options but it should work.
    That's what worked for me.  It's possible a few other things I did along the way tweaked it out, in my group policy on the first run I did select to upgrade previous group policies, for the remaster and repush I didn't select any previous GPO's to upgrade.
    It's hard to tell what one thing tweaked it out or what combination of things tweaked out the install.  I did also reinstall Adobe 8.1.5 and FF 3.0.10 before doing all this since our machines currently have that setup, I'm not sure if that affected it either, it's just hard to tell but I don't think it did simply because I had done that several times in troubleshooting this issue.
    If anyone else has more specifics that would be great!

    You can see the installed plugins on the about:plugins page.

    You can set the pref plugin.expose_full_path to true on the about:config page to see the full path of plugins on the about:plugins page.
    It is best not to leave that pref set to true as it exposes that full path to web servers, so reset that pref to false after you are done with the about:plugins page.
    You can open about:plugins and about:config via the location bar, like you open a website (about: is a special protocol to access some build-in pages).

  • The Adobe Acrobat/Reader that is running can not be used to view PDF files in a Web Browser. Please exit Adobe Acrobat/Reader and exit your Web Browser and try again.OK. I followed the instruction and the problem still persists.

    I got the following pop-up when I tried to open an online PDF file:
    The Adobe Acrobat/Reader that is running can not be used to view PDF files in a Web Browser.
    Please exit Adobe Acrobat/Reader and exit your Web Browser and try again.
    I tried many time, and it really doesn't work.
    The plug-in I have is Adobe Acrobat 8.3.0.280

    After I upgraded to Firefox 5, I had the same problem and I did a work around temporarily. I went the tools menu, then Add-ons, then clicked the "Plugins" on the left side (4th one down). I "disabled" both Adobe Acrobat 8.3.0.280 and Adobe Acrobat 10.1.0.536 using the disable buttons on the right side. PDF files now open again. However they are outside the actual browser.
    My guess is that Adobe didn't catch up yet with a new update to work with Firefox or vice versa.
    Hope that helps!

  • ??AAR is running & can't be used to view PDF files in a web browser

    I sure hope someone can explain what this means because I'm at a total loss.  I've been trying to print a priority postage label for the last 30 minutes and I keep getting this msg...."The Adobe Acrobat Reader that is running can not be used to view PDF files in a web broweser.  Exit Adobe Acrobat Reader and try again."
    believe me, I've tried again AND AGAIN.  Can someone please tell me what I need to do?  I'm using Windows XP and for some reason have always had problems with the AAR.  It tells me it can't open the file, and to try again, then the file opens.....???, but NOT this  I've even downloaded AAR 9.1 or what ever is the latest and it's not helped.
    I'm at my wit's end!
