PDF files not able to view with mac os but working fine with other browers even i downloaded pdf plugins

Hi,

On Apple Mac i am not able to view/open pdf files even i downloaded adobe reader plugins but same thing i can open with help of other browsers like chrome. And with firefox i am getting below message when try to open pdf files.

"It appears you don't have Adobe Reader or PDF support in this web browser. Click here to download Adobe Reader".

I want to fix it for my client.

So please suggest me to fix this.

When you install or update Adobe Reader, it installs a plugin for viewing PDF files inside Firefox and sets that as the default. The problem is that this plugin does not work. In order to view PDF files again follow these steps https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/pdf-files-are-blank-and-cant-be-downloaded-mac

I use PDF Viewer 0.7.1 instead. It displays your pdf in a new tab. It isn't perfect, but it works pretty well.
