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

  • 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.

  • 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....)!

    Hi...
    Go to  /Library/Internet Plug-Ins
    Move the Adobe PDF Browser plugin to the Trash.
    Quit then relaunch Safari to test.
    If you have trouble finding the files..
    Open the Finder. From the Finder menu bar click Go > Go to Folder

  • PDF FILES WILL NOT OPEN FROM DESKTOP

    Re: can't save PDF documents with safari 
    Nov 19, 2012 11:50 AM (in response to Magnus.LPA)
    Deleting the files "AdobePDFViewerNPAPI.plugin" and "AdobePDFViewer.plugin" worked BUT then Safari couldn't display pdf files embedded on web pages.
    I found putting "AdobePDFViewerNPAPI.plugin" back fixed the display problem.
    What I didn't know was that now when viewing a pdf, there is the pdf menu that becomes visible when mousing to the bottom of a page on the displayed pdf. Using it instead of the old Safari method for saving pdf's on web pages solved my problem.
    Thanks to C D R (above) for the tip!
    I'm on Snow Leopard 10.6.8.
    YAHOOOOOOOO - THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR INPUT.....

  • Pdf file will not open in iBooks 2.2?

    I have an iPhone 4S with iBooks 1.5 and the pdf file in question (a one-page school calendar), and any other pdfs for that matter, open fine after selecting the file in iBooks.  However, the same pdf file on my wife's 4S with iBooks 2.2 will not open.  You can see the thumbnail in iBooks, but it will not open.  Has anyone experienced and/or solved this?  Thanks so much.

  • Some PDF files will not open

    Hi - anyone who can help would be greatly appreciated as I am beyond frustrated.
    I have Adobe Reader (version 11.1.3) on my Android phone (SG4)  but this applies to iPhones as well. Some PDF files open without issue. But there are a few that just give me a message that says "Please wait... if this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents of the document, your PDF viewer may not be able to display this type of content. You canupgrade tot he latest version of Adobe Reader for Windows, Mac or Linux by visiting http://www.adobe.com/go/reader_download."
    There are 2 files specifically that boggle me. Both of these are Adobe forms, extended to reader, that I created and both were downloaded from our intranet. One will open and one will not. I tried recreating the one that will not open, had it uploaded to our intranet but still it won't open...
    I can't for the life of me understand why?!?!

    These are online documents, right?  This message usually means that you are trying to open the doc in a browser that uses its own PDF viewer, not the Adobe Reader plugin.

  • Pdf files will not open on back up drive

    I have windows xp pro. I am using the latest version of adobe reader x. Adobe reader works good on c: drive but when I copy and paste pdf files from c to a external hard drive as a back up adobe reader says it can't open because there was an error opening it. The external drive is a mybook world. what do i need to do to be able to open them on the external drive

    Could you please try turning off reader X protected mode and check if you continue to see the problem?
    You could turn off protected mode using following steps:
    1. Launch Reader X and select Edit->Preferences...
    2. Select General from left navigation
    3. Under application startup uncheck "Enable Protected Mode at Startup"
    Note: You should switch "ON" protected mode after verifying the problem. Purpose of Reader X Protected Mode is to keep your system safe from PDF based exploits and keeping protected mode OFF will leave your system vulnerable.
