Sometimes (but not always), when I try to open a pdf document from the US bankruptcy court website, I get a window asking if I want to use Adobe Acrobat. After I click "yes", I get a bland screen.

Hi.

Does this only open on that specific site?

In any case, you may want to:

- instruct Firefox to handle PDF files in a specific way by going into Tools > Options > Applications and selecting the option you want for the PDF files

- reinstall Adobe Reader and its Firefox plugin

- install another reader instead of Adobe Reader. I recommend Foxit Reader ( http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/ ), since it's free, VERY light, VERY fast, safe and also has a Firefox plugin (make sure you don't have both Adobe Reader plugin and Foxit Reader plugin enabled/installed at the same time in Firefox)
