How do I open PDF files on a website from my MacBook Air?

I get only a blank page when I click on a pdf file on a website. (I am able to open in Safari with a right click.)

I downloaded the PDF Viewer, but it didn't help.

I went to TOOLS to disable blocking extensions, but none were listed.

See:

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

PDF files may be found under entries like Portable document or Adobe PDF document.

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