PDF files are not opening in IE!!!

Some PDF files are not displayed while opening in browser IE . The PDF files are generated through servlets (JWS 2.1). While analysing the problem we have found that the one request invokes the doget() method of the servelet more than once. This problem is not appearing in netscape.
Please give suggestions.

I am having the same sort of problem. I have a form posting to a servlet that displays a pdf based on the vars posted to it. My doPost() calls doGet(). When I post to the the servlet the doPost() is called and then it calls the doGet() and then SOMETHING else calls the doGet() again. Since the vars that I am using to load the pdf are posted they are out of scope for the second doGet(). I tried two things to fix this:
I changed my doPost() method to do nothing but check the request variables and hold on to them. Then I changed my doGet() to use the values that I held instead of the request vars. This only worked sometimes.
Then when I rolled all of my code back and changed my form from POST to GET everything worked fine. It seems that there is something that causes the browser to always call the GET when you are using application/pdf. If my doPost() calls my doGet() everything is lost on the second doGet()

  • PDF files are not opening even i have latest reader and re-installed firefox

    I am able to open in IE and Chrome but in FF it always shows that not able to open - the reader plug-in starts, open a blank window with caption "PDF might not be displayed properly" when downloaded, it opens fine with Adobe Reader.

    hello vijayabhaskarv, that sounds as if you're using the pdf viewer built into firefox per default, which might not work in all situations. please see the following article in order to select a different plugin to render pdf files: [[How to disable the built-in PDF viewer and use another viewer]]

    I have Adobe downloaded and in the past couple months the files haven't been able to open. It opens and it's black. I have re-downloaded it and it's still the same. Anyone have suggestions? It's a Mac.

  • PDF files will not open in a Safari (v 6.0.5) browser window

    PDF files will not open in a Safari (v 6.0.5) browser window, OS 10.8.5. Version 11.0.04 Adobe Reader and Plug-ins installed. Both local and internet files do not load. What is happening here?

    Ok. I reloaded v 11.0.04 of Adobe Reader after quiting Safari 6.0.5 . Then deleted the 2 plug-ins AdobePDFViewer.plugin and AdobePDFViewerNPAPI.plugin . Relaunched Safari and tried to read a pdf from a repository at the URL mentioned in post 10 . The file was loaded and displayed correctly. Also a pdf file from my local disk store displayed nicely as well. What I do not understand is that there is no listing of an Adobe plug in /Library/Internet Plug-Ins , nor does Safari list any Adobe plug ins. So in that case this means that plug-ins for the display of pdfs in Safari windows are no longer needed!
    Adobe Reader version 11.0.04  is now working for me.
    Thanks for the help and the solution C.F.McBlob

  • Pdf files will not open upon downloading

    I download a lot of pdf docs for work and want them to open automatically upon download so I can screen them.  Since upgrading to Safari 5.1, when I download files (which has gotten much more cumbersome) they do not automatically open upon download.  Yes, I DO have the "open safe files after downloading" option checked in Preferences.  Any other thoughts?  A solution would be most helpful.  (If anyone has a solution to how I can automatically download files as easily as in prior versions, that would be greatly appreciated also.)

    Doesn't make much sense to me. Methinks details are needed.

  • .PDF files will not open without saving first

    Since downloading Adobe Reader 11.0.07 on 5/20/14 .pdf files will not open without saving them first. I want .pdf files to open first BEFORE I save them (using Windows 7 and Firefox 30.0)

  • Pdf files will not open

    Hi,
    I have viewed through this forum and did not find a problem with similar symptoms.
    I upgraded from Adobe Reader 8 to Reader 9 and then the .pdf files will not open.
    Actions and Observations/Symptoms:
    1)  After I clicked onto the pdf document icon - nothing happens.
    2)  I right click onto the pdf icon and chose "open with Adobe 9" and get the same response.  Nothing happens.
    3)  I go to the the start menu - select Adobe Reader 9 - and the program does not even open.
    =======
    I have since removed Reader 9 and re-installed Reader 8.  I tried the above actions and got the same behaviour.  Not a whole lot happens.  It seems like something is broken after the first initial upgrade.
    In fact - I went to the folder:  
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader  and
    tried to open Reader by double clicking onto "AcroRd32.exe" and there was no response.
    I'm completely lost!  Can anyone share a fix to my problem?
    Thanks,
    Mike

    I can't explain the cause to the problem - but I found two "work-arounds" to get me running again.
    Workaround #1:
    I found another program (and there are many) on the web that will also read .pdf files.  I downloaded  "Foxit Reader" , installed it and it works.  I can now view my pdf docs!
    However - I got so used to Adobe Reader - I really wanted to get Reader working again.
    Workaround #2:
    I re-installed Adobe Reader 8.
    Instead of running the usual Adobe installation script that I got from the web, I copied (from another PC's C-drive)  the "Reader 8.0" folder and all its contents into my current C- drive directory structure  C:\Program Files\Adobe\.
    I re-booted the PC and can now open my pdf files using Reader 8.
    It seems to work - but I don't know what the effects of this installation method will have in the future - or the interaction it will have with other programs.  I guess when I need to remove the program in the future  - I'll have to do it manually, since it doesn't even register in the "Add or Remove Programs" under Control Panel.
    ===============
    Hope this helps out anyone else with similar symptoms.
    In the original problem, it's unfortunate that there were no error messages whatsoever when I tried opening the pdf files.  It was like as if Reader was not even activated or even loaded on my PC.  I'll bug me for a while - but at least I got Reader working again (for now....)!

  • Pdf files wil not open under Windows Live Mail

    PDF Files will not open in WIndows Live Mail. I deinstalled Adobe Reader and reinstalled a more recent version but to no avail. It will open very well using WIndows explorer or when opening the reader. Any clues someone?

    WLM is version 2009 14.0.8117.0416. I'm running under Vista and all other more recent versions are not compatible. The file association has been made and I can open all pdf files in Windows explorer. Under Outlook mail it works as well. It worked until recently when I loaded a program that was supposed to convert pdf files to Word but that did not work so I had to deinstall it and redo the file association. It worked everywher except in WLM.

  • Embedded pdf files will not open

    Dell Laptop Windows XP up to date, Firefox 4.0, Adobe Reader 10.0.1
    Since updating to Firefox 4.0 certain embedded pdf files will not open forcing me to use my Internet Explorer browser to access these files. Tried all of the FAQ suggestions with no relief.
    NOTE: I can open previously opened files (Firefox 3.___) but not a new one.

    Thank you for the response. I insereted several .pdf files into my MS Word document where they show as Acobat icons. When in MS Word, I am able to double-click on the icons and the files open in Acrobat. I then converted the MS Word document to a .pdf. These icons now only show as pictures and do not open the original inserted .pdf documents.

  • Webarchive files are not opening- what to do?

    My webarchive files are not opening.  I have a lot saved from previous months of research.  I never had a problem opening them before.  Now all of a sudden I get a page from mywebsearch that simply says "Recently closed."  All of them...even the ones I saved this afternoon.
    Can someone help?

    You can try using this tool to first remove all traces of Reader:
    http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/acrobatcleaner.html
    Then, you can download the offline Reader installer from
    http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise/
    After downloading, restart your computer and run the installer before doing anything else.
