  • Even I have the latest version of Adober reader I still can not open pdf file on safari

    Even I have the latest version of Adober reader I still can not open pdf file on safari.

    Save the file locally, open the Reader application and try to open it from there. If it still doesn't work provide the full details of your OS, Reader version and the exact error message you're getting when you try to open the file.

  • Can't open PDF files in safari

    I have a problem opening PDF files in safari
    50% of the time I get a error message:
    "could not launch acrobat." then safari quits,
    and the other 50% of the time:
    it safari does noting for about half a minute and then quits,
    it's not a problem with acrobat, because it does work in Fx and Chrome
    anyone knows what's wrong and, especially, how to solve it?

    There's a couple things you can try to view pdf files in Safari.
    Install Acrobat Reader 9 and it will ask if you Acrobat Reader to view pdf's. Close Safari, check yes and re-open. If AR9 is already installed, go to prefs/internet and and check yes in the box for 'display pdf in browser using......'.
    Alternatively, if Acrobat is opening the pdf file in Safari, and you don't like it (which I didn't), go HD/library/internet plugins and throw away the 'AdobePDFviewer' plugin, and restart Safari. I believe the Quicktime plugin then handles the pdf.
    You may also need to check the mime types in Quicktime. Open System Preferences/Quicktime/Advanced and open the Mime Settings button. Scroll to 'images' and check the box for pdf's.
    Hope this helps.

  • Could not open PDF Files with Safari using Lion - Solution

    Two for one solution:
    After installing Lion on my Macbook Pro, I could not open PDF files on line via Safari and iPhoto 11 kept crashing.
    Well, the solution for bothy problems was to remove the "3ivx" file. 
    The easiest way to do so is go to Applications > 3ivx folder > run Remove 3ivx app.
    OR:
    Finder > Library folder > Application Support folder > drag "3ivx" folder to trash and trash.

  • Can't open pdf files in Safari for Windows

    Hi, I haven't been able to open pdf files in Safari - each time I click on a pdf link, a new tab opend and then a pop-up window says "can't open Adobe" (or something like that), and then Safari crashes. I've read that the solution is to install Adobe Reader 8, but I can't because I already have Adobe Acrobat which doesn't seem to work with safari. Does anyone know a way to view pdf files in Safari for windows?

    Try to uninstall and after that install Acrobat Reader 8 again.

  • I can't open pdf files in Safari

    I cant open pdf files in Safari. The page opens,but it is gray.

    Hi,
    I had the same problem---contacted Adobe and their service rep helped me by
    Deleting Adobe Reader from my iMac's Applications in Finder and delete Adobe Reader Plug In (Finder-Home-Library-Internet Plug Ins---Adobe Reader plug In)
    and restart your safari.

  • Why can I not open pdf files in Safari? All I get is a black screen.

    Suddenly Safari will not allow me to open pdf-files, and I have gathered from other discussions that it is a problem. I removed Adobe Reader, to see if Preview would kick in but it did not work. Any suggestions?
    Thankful for any ideas.

  • Can not open PDF's in Safari

    Hi All:
    I know this has been asked and answered so many time that I am sorry to post again. However, I have read many of the prior posts, tired the fixes, and still the problem persists. All of a sudden, without any erxplanation I know of, PDF links do not open within Safari, as in the past, but instead revert to the Downloads and open in Preview.
    MacBook Pro OS: 10.6.8
    Safari: 5.1.7
    I have two other accounts set up and they both open PDF links within Safari.
    I have downloaded Adobe Reader again, checked my plugins. I can’t locate any Adobe plugins on either my home account or hard drive, restarted, etc.
    If possible, can someone try and offer assistance. It's one of those things which is bugging me and have been struggling with for the past three hours.
    thank you.

    Hi Linc:
    You and Carolyn seem to tbe the go to  people for this issue.
    When I pull up the plug0ins from the Help Menu, I get an entire page. I've tried copying it below.
    What really confuses me is that it works fine in my other accounts and I can't determine what is different in this account.
    thanks,

  • How can I open pdf files in safari browser without installing Adobe reader?

    I do not wish to use adobe reader. I just uninstalled it and now I can't view pdf files in preview when attempting to open the file in safari browser.  How can set safari to open any pdf files using preview application?

    Copy the text below, including the initial /
    /Library/Internet Plug-Ins
    Switch to Finder, then use the Go menu - Go to Folder command & paste in the text, clicking Go afterwards.
    A Finder window should open, showing various plug-in files. Trash any that are for Adobe or PDF. You'll be asked for an admin name & password.

  • How can I open .pdf files in Safari 5.1 ?

    The Problem:
    After loading OSX 10.7.1, whenever I try to open a .pdf file from a website using Safari 5.1, I get a blank gray/black screen with the Quicktime  Q symbol in the middle.
    Notes:
    I downloaded and set my preference to use Adobe Reader version 10.1.1 on all .pdf files.  
    I am able to successfully open .pdf files, with Adobe Reader, which are on already on my hard drive.
    I am also able to successfully open .pdf files, with Adobe Reader, which are sent to me via email.
    Only the Safari website .pdf files are unopenable.
    Help is appreciated.

  • I can not open PDF's from Safari.

    I have already uninstalled Adobe Reader and made Preview my default reader again. When i open a PDF, i get back a black screen. Previously, i would get a black screen with message saying i needed to accept the License and Agreements of Adobe Reader. Then i decided to throw out in the trash the Adobe Reader plug ins and that message does not show any more when i attempt to open the PDF but the black screen is still there.
    Any help?

    Back up all data before making any changes. Please take each of the following steps until the problem is resolved.
    Step 1
    If Adobe Reader or Acrobat is installed, and the problem is just that you can't print PDF's displayed in Safari, you may be able to print by moving the cursor to the the bottom edge of the page, somewhere near the middle. A black toolbar may appear under the cursor. Click the printer icon.
    Step 2
    There should be a setting in its preferences of the Adobe application such as Display PDF in Browser. I don't use those applications myself, so I can't be more precise. Deselect that setting, if it's selected.
    Step 3
    If you get a message such as ""Adobe Reader blocked for this website," then from the Safari menu bar, select
    Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Security
    and check the box marked
    Allow Plug-ins
    Then click
    Manage Website Settings...
    and make any required changes to the security settings for the Adobe PDF plugin.
    Step 4
    Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it, the copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C:
    /Library/Internet Plug-ins
    In the Finder, select
    Go ▹ Go to Folder
    from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-G. Paste into the text box that opens (command-V), then press return.
    From the folder that opens, move to the Trash any items that have "Adobe" or “PDF” in the name. You may be prompted for your login password. Then quit and relaunch Safari.
    Step 5
    The "Silverlight" web plugin distributed by Microsoft can interfere with PDF display in Safari, so you may need to remove it, if it's present. The same goes for a plugin called "iGetter," and perhaps others — I don't have a complete list. Don't remove Silverlight if you use the "Netflix" video-streaming service.
    Step 6
    Do as in Step 4 with this line:
    ~/Library/Internet Plug-ins
    If you don’t like the results of this procedure, restore the items from the backup you made before you started. Relaunch Safari.
