Firefox 17.0.1 on my Mac OSX 10.7.5 will no longer work with Adobe Reader 11.0.0. What shall I do to fix it ?

Posted

When I try to read a page with Adobe Reader I get the following message:

Adobe Reader cannot show documents in this browser.

Why is that ? It occurer a short period ago, and prior to that I have had no problem. I have no problem when I use Safari - but normally I prefer Firefox. So, please help me - and tell me what to do. Thanks in advance.

I've had the same problem using Mac OSX 10.6.8. I took the advice in one reply and downloaded Schubert it Browser plug-in for Mac. Et voila! Now I can download my bills. Note: use the print icon in the viewer frame rather than the Firefox file and print.

Allow pdf to view in firefox. if still you have the problem in viewing, Make use of Firefox Add-ons to view the PDF documents in Firefox

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=pdf+viewer

Question owner

Have tried via ADD-ONS to install PDF Viewer + Save as PDF. But it makes no difference. What else can I do ?

Or do I have to accept to work with Safari instead of Firefox from now on ?

You can disable the Adobe Reader plugin in Firefox (Tools > Add-ons > Plugins) and use the external Adobe Reader application or Preview application instead.

  • Firefox > Preferences > Applications > Adobe PDF document : Use Adobe Reader

PDF files may also be found under another entry like Portable document.

Question owner

The main problem is reading a home page with info written as a pdf document. If I down load a pdf document, I can choose another program to open it.
