How can I add Adobe Acrobat into my Applications under content type so I can open up pdfs in a firefox window?

firefox won't open pdf's in a new window. I get a blank page. When viewing my application options, Adobe Acrobat is not listed under content type anywhere. I entered about:plugins in the address bar and it is showing that I do in fact have Adobe acrobat.
File: nppdf32.dll
Version: 7.0.8.218
Adobe Acrobat Plug-In Version 7.00 for Netscape
I also know I have it, because I have no problem using it in IE.
What can I do to get pdfs to open in a firefox window?

Thanks. That worked.
I went to the profiles directory by putting %APPDATA% in the run window, then in explorer went to mozilla, firefox, profiles, and deleted the mimeTypes.rdf file after making sure firefox was closed. Opened firefox again and mailto links worked. Tried it on my friend's computer and it work on it as well.

  • There is no Exit menu item on my Files menu, can't add Adobe Acrobat Document to Applications.

    Firefox 3.6.12, Reader 9.4, (reinstalled).
    Firefox downloads a pdf file rather than opening it.
    Adobe Acrobat Document is not listed as an application (Tools>Options>Applications from FF menu).
    FF support page suggests opening profile, then File>Exit and deleting a file. However, there is no Exit option on my File menu.
    The Adobe forum feels that this is a Firefox problem, especially since Reader works file with both IE8 and Chrome.
    I want to make it work in Firefox....any ideas?
    Thanks.

    Solved with a workaround. Initial confusion was that Exit was referring to the main Firefox browser, not the window that opened with File. Then had to delete the dll file suggest by Mozilla support. There was also an apparent conflict between Adobe Acrobat and Reader.
    Working for now.

  • How can I add apple loops into Garageband on the iPad so that they can be retrieved from the loops section of the app (and not via 'import')?

    The issue with using the import function in the track is that you cant preview the sample and check it's suitability before you bring it in to the selected track.
    If samples can be added to the Garageband 'Loop Library' - that would be graet. Can anyone help?

    I think the Pearson people gave you the right advice. There is no way you can run a program that requires a Mac computer on an iDevice.

  • When I try to open Adobe Acrobat XI Pro it just freezes, it also freezes when opening a PDF document. What can be done to resolve this or troubleshoot this?

    Adobe Acrobat Pro XI is having some issues. When just the base program opens it freezes before I can even do anything with preferences. The same thing happens when I open a PDF document from anywhere. I have cleared the %temp% directory and repair installed the program with no success in finding a resolution to this issue. I have removed Adobe AIR as a thread indicated that this program could be the cause of some issues. I even restarted the print spooler as that was mentioned in a different post on Adobe Support Forums.

    I would suggest rebooting (particularly if you have not) and log in as the administrator. Also, it sounds like you can open Acrobat, but then it locks up when you try to do the preferences. So in that case go to Help>Repair and apply that. Then repeat the process with Help>Updates to get current. See if that resolves the issues. Since you mentioned %temp%, I assume you are on a windows machine, but which one?

  • How do I add adobe Acrobat as a printer option in InDesign?

    I purchased a new computer (MAC Book Pro) and am working from Adobe CC. I have the option in both chrome and word and I've always had the option in InDesign before so I am not sure how to add it. I have the Postscript option but I would like the ablility to print directly to PDF for those times where it doesn't want to export. - Thanks

    Thanks for your response Steve, but Spier is correct I'm looking to add it as a print driver. I can export to pdf fine but sometimes when that isn't working or if I want the file to be compressed further I do File>Print and chose a printer, usually there is an option for Adobe PDF but the only option I currently have is Postscript. Looks like it was taken away. Thanks everyone!

  • How do I get Adobe Acrobat to appear in the Conent Type listins under Tools/Options/Applications

    I want PDFs to open in Acrobat within the browser and not open up the Acrobat application. The Firefox 4.0 Help lists the way to do this, but Acrobat does not appear in my list under Tools/Options/Applications, so I'm stuck with no answer

    Hi ITBobbyP,
    According to your description, you want to change the View report color in VS 2013. Right?
    In this scenario, the button shows white text in a grey background because you select the
    Dark in color theme. Please go to TOOLS->Options->General->Environment, we just need to change
    Blue or Light.
    If you have any question, please feel free to ask.
    Best Regards,

  • Changing Applications default content type for e.g fro Adobe Acrobat 7 to Adobe Acrobat Document

    How can I change the default Applications content type, currently it point to Adobe Acrobat 7.0 the correct content type should be Adobe Acrobat Document.

    See the [[managing file types]] article, in particular the section on changing download actions. You may need to select "Use other" and browse to the application if it is not listed as one of the default options.

  • How can I install Adobe Acrobat without installing the browser extensions?

    Hello All,
    I am a computer Technician at a high school and we have very strict browser requirements for different services. We need to use Adobe Acrobat to convert PDF's, and other tasks, and we need to use Chrome to open Adobe Reader files. The issue is that I want my 3 browsers (Chrome, IE, Firefox) to open PDF files using Adobe Reader XI. All my plugin settings are correct to use Adobe Reader to open PDF's, but it either downloads a PDF to the computer, or opens up in the browsers default reader (Chrome does this), or opens up to a blank page with a blank error message. I went into the programs Internet settings for Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat and it's telling me the browser opens them up using Adobe Acrobat (With no option to change the setting). The problem is only solved when I uninstall Adobe Acrobat.Then I am able to open PDF's in Adobe Reader just like I want (but this gets rids of Acrobat). This leads me to believe that when I install Adobe Acrobat, there is a registry key or something that is telling the computer to open PDF's in browsers using Acrobat. My initial question is this: How can I install adobe Acrobat without linking it to the browser. I JUST want Adobe Acrobat as a program installed on the computer.
    Additional Info:
    - I build a computer image and use that image on several computers. This issue persists with all of the computers I installed the image on.
    - I am using Adobe Reader 11 (Now DC, but I am willing to use either) and Adobe Acrobat Pro CS3 (I think it's version 9?)
    Thanks for the help.
    - Charlie

    No answer yet. Paging Acrobat support.... Where are you?

    If so, you need Acrobat for that. Reader doesn't not install a PDF printer.

  • How can I get Adobe Acrobat 7 to embed a specific font?

        created by Dave Merchant in Acrobat Windows - View the full discussion
    A particular PDF file can have fonts embedded within it, or may refer to fonts installed in the operating system - but in either case it uses the Postscript name of the font, not the common name seen on menus. This ensures that when fonts are substituted or edits are made to the PDF file, the correct version and vendor are matched, not just the common name. Postscript names are unique, and often end with the initials of the vendor (LT = Linotype, MT = Monotype, etc.). "Times" on a font menu refers to the Linotype font "Times-Roman" (sold by Adobe and others), and "Times New Roman" refers to the Monotype font usually named "TimesNewRomanPSMT" (a Postscript font in a TrueType package, which is part of the standard set on Windows). They look the same from a distance, but internally they are different enough that a direct replacement is not normally possible. If you ever need to work out which has been used and cannot inspect the metadata, look very closely at the number "5" - in the Linotype font it has a tiny serif on the top right corner.  Embedding a font into a file has no effect on Acrobat whatsoever (lisabritne, what you're saying makes no sense).

  • How can I transfer Adobe Acrobat from my old PC to my New PC?

    How can I transfer Adobe Acrobat from my old Laptop to my new laptop?

    You have to deactivate and uninstall on the old system and then reinstall on the new system. Whether it works depends on the Acrobat version (looks like you indicated AAX) and OS. You need to be sure to update after the new install. Just transferring files like you imply you want to do is not possible with almost any modern software. The software not only loads files, but sets all sorts of registry entries that would take a lot of time to find. In the past there were some programs that supposedly tried to move programs, but I have not seen mention of one in years.

  • I have alot of loose photos at home (old) and I would love to make a bunch of iphoto books and make the pages like whole page collages?  How do I get my photos into iphoto in order to do this?  Can I make a DVD at the drugstore and add them to iphoto?

    You can make the collages easily if you have iWork.  Just open a letter sized page in landscape mode and drag the photos onto the page, rotate and postiion as necessary.  Then do a Print ➙ PDF ➙ Save PDF to iPhoto to get a 200 dpi jpeg version of the Pages page into iPhoto.  From there you can add it to your book and use a blank page with the option to have an image as the backbround. 
    If you have a 3rd party image editor that supports layers you can create the collage with it.

  • How can I update Adobe Acrobat 8.0 Standard

    How can I update Adobe Acrobat 8.0 Standard after installing it on Windows 7? Ive tried a few AcrobatUpd8**_all_incr.msp files but I get an error that the program to upgrade may be missing. I cannot afford to upgrade it to X* when this works for what I need it for which is simply to break up multi page documents created by Quickbooks.

    Certainly, the printer driver in Acrobat 8.0 cannot install in Windows 7 64 bit - it wasn't written too. Apparently, though, 8.1 is capable of installing the printer driver.
    Unfortunately, Adobe have taken down the page with release notes. But you may need to use the *efg* (English, French, German) versions. See http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/update-patch-acrobat-reader-7.html
    After 8.1 there is a "universal" (all language) update.
