Upgraded to firefox version 5 for Mac OSX 10, from version 3.6.18, now cannot open.pdf files from links . Only get blank page.

Worked okay with previous version of Firefox 3.6.18

The following worked for me:
"Problem: I had the same problem but with mac osx 10.5.8, Firefox 3.6.6 sometimes prints and sometimes does not, but the preview was always blank and I could not save to pdf file.
Solution: I downloaded Firefox 3.5.10, installed it on my desktop and opened it, tried print preview and it worked, quit Firefox 3.5.10 and ran 3.6.6 and voila! print preview is working fine and I can save to pdf fine.
I guess running 3.5.10 fixes the profile in a certain way. I have no idea how that happened but it worked."

    Hi there,
    After upgrading to Firefox 8 for mac osx I am unable to close a browser window using command w, or command shift w?
    Is there any way I can correct this as it is very annoying?

  • Upgraded from X to XI but now cannot open PDF.

    Have upgraded per email notification from X to XI but now cannot open PDF.  Opens with Adobe screen with blank grey background for about 3 seconds then disappears.  Uninstalled both macafee (accidentally installed at same time) and XI, reinstalled as X (without macafee) which was fine prior to XI installation but still same result.  Using windows 7 and Norton protection on Toshiba QOSMIO laptrop about 9 months old.  Not technically savvy on computers,  Any help please?

    Things to try...
    Using Windows Explorer navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader, then double-click on Eula.exe and accept the license agreement
    Can you open Adobe Reader by itself?  If so, try disabling Protected Mode [Edit | Preferences | Security (Enhanced)].
    It could even be a malware issue; see http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/reader-core-dll-error.html

  • Cannot save or download anyfiles since upgrading to Firefox 5 for Mac OSx

    I cannot download any type of file since upgrading to firefox 5 -- .doc, .pdf, .dmg (just a few examples) -- All I get is a three .part files. These files never join and cannot be manually joined. I have tried every tip at the following URL and it did not fix the problem.

    Firefox 3.6.4, 3.6.6 and now 3.6.7 have the same problem: Save Page or Link not working after clean installation of the above versions or even with Firefox in Safe Mode: Firefox Not Responding. Last version working normally is 3.6.3.
    Is Mozilla checking this Forum? Should we drop using Firefox?

  • I just upgraded to Firefox 4 on my new MacBook Pro and can't open pdf files, or sometimes only the first page will open. Can anyone help?

    There are no more details. The files either open to a blank page or the first page only.

    Me thinks you have tried to connect to a shortcut folder and not a genuine folder.
    Note Mac OS X in Mac OS X 10.4 has 3 popular folder shortcut locations:
    The leftmost column of the Finder window.
    The horizontal toolbar on the top of the Finder window
    The translucent bar which can be anchored on the side or bottom of the screen known as the Dock. These are not true folder locations, but only locations for shortcuts. When you click on a folder for a volume that is not mounted, or is a folder which was deleted it will behave in this fashion. Often if you click on it the right fashion, it will change to a question mark.
    In addition if it is an alias to an existing folder that has no contents, it will behave this way from the three shortcut locations.
    If you right click instead of the left click a folder, it may think you want to do something to the folder which you can't do. Make sure your mouse button functions properly as a Primary button on Apple menu -> System Preferences -> Keyboard and Mouse.
    Also make sure Universal Access is not turned on as it too can cause funny behavior in the mouse click actions, in Apple menu -> System Preferences -> Universal Access.

  • With OSX 10.8.5 cannot open PDF files with 11.0.04?

    using OSX 10.8.5 cannot open PDF files from Xerox Docushare with recently downloaded PDF 11.0.04

    That crash is a known bug in Apple's display code.
    But it's the QuickDraw code, which Apple does not want to fix.
    There is nothing we can do about that OS bug, other than to suggest using a more recent version of Photoshop written to the Cocoa APIs.

  • Hello. My safari (and i keep it updated) cannot open PDF files. Should i install Adobe Reader and which version????? I have Mac Book Pro running OS 10.9

    My safari (and i keep it updated) cannot open PDF files.Should i install Adobe Reader and which version????/ I have Mac Book Pro running OS 10.9
    Please help me!!!!

    Back up all data.
    If Adobe Reader or Acrobat is installed, there should be a setting in its preferences 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. Otherwise do as follows.
    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, and test.
    The "Silverlight" web plugin distributed by Microsoft can also interfere with PDF display in Safari, so you may need to remove it as well, if it's present. The same goes for a plugin called "iGetter," and perhaps others — I don't have a complete list.
    If you still have the issue, repeat 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 again.

  • Installing OSX Lion has killed Macromedia (Adobe) Freehand 11. I now cannot open valuable files for publications, some 'underway'. Apparently because Apple, in their wisdom, have decided to no longer support 'Power PC' software. Any solutions?

    Installing Mac OSX Lion has killed Macromedia (Adobe) Freehand 11 – which is otherwise perfectly viable, current graphics software (originally designed for Mac, I thought). I now cannot open valuable files used to create figures for publications, and work 'underway' is dead in the water. Apparently Apple, in their wisdom, have decided to no longer support 'Power PC' software. Any solutions? Work arounds?

    Good point/question (Does Lion have some function I need/want?). It seems, from the blurb, that the move to iCloud requires, or will be best supported by, Lion. Certainly they're saying that iOS5 on iPhone will be needed, and it's implied that iOS5 and Lion are designed for compatibility. So yes, perhaps, not sure.
    At this exact moment in time, yes, Lion is required. There are "rumors" of a 10.6.9 SL release for iCloud, but that type of discussion is not allowed here, so I won't discuss it.
    However, your idea, and from the other replies, to run SL on another partition – yes I did backup before installing Lion – sounds like a way forward. I'll try it – thanks!
    I do think that's the best plan at present. You're welcome, and good luck.

  • Can no longer open PDF files from my emails sent from other websites. Problem seems to correlate with automatic upgrade of free adobe software (from version 11 to Reader DC)?

    Can no longer open PDF files from my emails sent from other websites. Problem seems to correlate with automatic upgrade of free adobe software (from version 11 to Reader DC)?

    To configure the browser to use Acrobat or Adobe Reader to open PDF files:
    1. Quit Internet Explorer(any other browser)
    2. Start Acrobat or Adobe Reader.
    3. Choose Edit > Preferences.
    4. Select Internet in the list on the left.
    5. Deselect(Uncheck) Display PDF in Browser, and click OK.
    6. Restart Internet Explorer

  • Cannot open pdf file with Firefox 11.0

    Firefox automatically upgrades the version I am using. Since it was recently upgraded I cannot open pdf files. Am faced with a blank page. I went through some of the suggestions on these pages and when I opened the Tools window, there is a warning:
    Firefox PDF Plugin for Mac OS X is incompatible with Firefox 11!
    Is there a way around it? Or is it time to say goodbye to Firefox and move to Safari?

    When Firefox updates, it turns
    off add-ons that are not
    compatible with the new
    version. In addition, add-ons
    that may have been
    automatically installed by other
    programs without your
    knowledge (third party add-
    ons) have been disabled. For
    more info about re-enabling
    add-ons, see the link below.

  • Cannot open pdf files with Firefox's built-in pdf viewer

    This just started (I think) with Firefox 37.01. This is on Win7-X64. I cannot open pdf files with the Firefox built-in pdf viewer. If I click on the file or try to open it from within Firefox, it brings up a "opening filename.pdf" message. If I select the "Open with" radio button as 'Firefox (default),' it just keeps looping on this process; it never opens. In Tools => Options => Applications, Portable Document Format (PDF) is indicated as 'Preview in Firefox.' I've never had any other PDF viewer installed on this computer. I've tried disabling all plug-ins and extensions, but it still doesn't work. I searched for solutions but haven't found any for this specific issue.
    Thanks for the help.

    Have you tried, to start Firefox in safemode you can do so by following these steps
    '''If Firefox is open,''' you can restart in Firefox Safe Mode from the Help menu:
    * Click the menu button [[Image:New Fx Menu]], click Help [[Image:Help-29]] and select ''Restart with Add-ons Disabled''.
    '''If Firefox is not running,''' you can start Firefox in Safe Mode as follows:
    * On Windows: Hold the '''Shift''' key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
    * On Mac: Hold the '''option''' key while starting Firefox.
    * On Linux: Quit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run ''firefox -safe-mode'' <br>(you may need to specify the Firefox installation path e.g. /usr/lib/firefox)
    When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "Start in Safe Mode".
    '''''If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode''''', your problem is probably caused by an extension, theme, or hardware acceleration. Please follow the steps in the [[Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems]] article to find the cause.
    ''To exit Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.''
    When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help others with the same problem.

  • Can't open PDF file from iBook on MAC. error "The application "ACDSee Pro" can't be opened."

    Can't open PDF file from iBook on MAC. error "The application “ACDSee Pro” can’t be opened."

    Hi arewers,
    Do you have Adobe Reader installed, by any chance? If so, are you aware if it was the PPC or Intel version which you installed? In any case, for the time being, have a quick look in 'HD/Library/Internet Plug-ins/' using Finder and see if there's an Adobe plugin lying around. If there is, try moving it out of the folder and restarting Safari.

  • I cannot open PDF files since installing Firefox 4. Have tried everything. Help.

    I installed Firefox 4, and now I cannot open PDF files. I have tried everything, including disabling PDF download, re-installing Adobe Reader, etc etc. Nothing seems to work.

    I was under the impression Foxit was a pdf viewer rather than an addon for Firefox, but maybe there is more than one application with a similar name.
    I did not notice mention of foxit in the help, but add-ons are not always mentioned.
