I cannot search a pdf file in Firefox. I select Edit form the menu bar then Find from the drop-down menu. I then enter a search work in the text box bottom right but it simply turns red and does nothing.

When I display the same pdf file in Internet Explorer it works.

Chosen solution

I resolved this issue by going into Tools/Options and changing the setting for 'Adobe Acrobat Document' from 'Use Acrobat reader (in Firefox)' to 'Use Acrobat Reader (Default)'. Sounds illogical to me but it works.
