Adobe Reader updater script error - download of reader does not occur
When accessing a web page that tries to display a PDF document, Firefox says my plugin needs to be updated and offers to do that. I download the updater and run it and it comes up with a dialog box with the info below. Interestingly, even though I am running Firefox, the dialog box is "Internet Explorer Script Error" box. Note I can still view the PDF document by closing the Firefox notification bar that my plugin needs to be updated.
