I found a link to the firefox PDF plugin extension but the page is under construction.
I trust this support article is what you need:
And this one too (linked in the article I linked to above):
Thank you so much for the quick reply. Unfortunately these links lead to a page that says "Repairs in Progress" so I am still unable to download the plugin. Any other suggestions?
You should be able to get Adobe reader from here:
If this page is giving you trouble, contact Adobe for support. Or you can try an alternative to Adobe Reader. I recommend Foxit Reader:
It's lighter, faster and has all the functionality. It's also free. Use whatever software you feel more comfortable with.
Thanks for all of your help, but I am still really struggling. Foxit sounds great but as far as I can tell is only for windows and I have a mac. The trouble with using the adobe website is that they do not have a plugin for firefox. I got as far as this and do not know how to proceed http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/dlm/firefox_steps.html
The instructions start by referencing a yellow bar which I do not currently have. I have searched through everything on the toolbar and cannot find a way to allowed sites. I searched the web but all the instructions seem to start when a person sees this yellow bar, which obviously I do not.
Would you have any other suggestions? I cannot be the only person this is happening to. Sorry to keep bothering you but I really need to open several pdfs today.
Yeah, installing Adobe software is a total pain in the ass, I know, but if you are having troubles, you really need to contact Adobe, sorry.
It's me again. Actually I was able to install this reader once I realized I have a PowerPC processor. http://www.schubert-it.com/pluginpdf/
However, when I attempt to open a pdf I am directed to choose an application to open it with- I select this pdf reader- and nothing happens. Should I try to contact schubert?
Have you check this support article?
It says how to configure Firefox to open PDF files inside Firefox (using the plugin).
Yes that's the page that sent me to the Schubert site. I downloaded and installed their pdf reader but nothing happens when I download a pdf now. I honestly cannot believe this is so difficult. I will have to go into a store and ask for help I think. Thanks for trying to help me.
You're welcome. I'm sorry I can't be of further assistance.
