That support article uses Adobe Reader as the example for settings. You have Foxit Reader Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape installed, so you're going to have to look for the preference to have the PDF displayed in the browser window in the FoxIt preferences.

I had this problem. I downloaded Foxit and went to Tools>Options>applications> and changed 4 adobe Acrobat(firefox) entries to point instead to ProgramFiles>Foxit>Foxit.exe The system finally works!

I have had this problem in Firefox version 3. I updated to Firefox 4 and again I received a message that Adobe Acrobat could not be opened witthis browser. Howver, I went to "Opening PDF files in Firefox" in Firefox support. I followed the instructions under "Check Firefox settings". Iset the Action for Adobe Acrobat Document to "Use Adobe Reader 9.4 (default)" and IT WORKED.

I had the same problem, so I went into Tools / Options / Applications and changed from "Use Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox) to "Use Adobe Acrobat 9.2" and it works fine. Hope that helps. Gainsay14

I had the same problem, foxit has a new version of the plugin for Firefox 4. You just have to desintall and reinstall foxit reader, it worked for me.

I would like to tell firefox to download and open PDFs using Adobe instead of a plugin. Is there any way to do this?
