Cannot open pdf file with Firefox 11.0
Firefox automatically upgrades the version I am using. Since it was recently upgraded I cannot open pdf files. Am faced with a blank page. I went through some of the suggestions on these pages and when I opened the Tools window, there is a warning:
Firefox PDF Plugin for Mac OS X is incompatible with Firefox 11!
Is there a way around it? Or is it time to say goodbye to Firefox and move to Safari?
I had the same problem. Go to Tools>Add-Ons>Plug-Ins, and disable Adobe Acrobat plug in. Once I did that, my PDFs opened in Preview again.Read this answer in context 👍 13

When Firefox updates, it turns off add-ons that are not compatible with the new version. In addition, add-ons that may have been automatically installed by other programs without your knowledge (third party add- ons) have been disabled. For more info about re-enabling add-ons, see the link below. http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Add-ons%20are%20disabled%20after%20updating%20Firefox#os=android&browser=m10

Yes, as posted above.
There have been problems reported with the latest Adobe Reader update on Mac.
See [/questions/925119] You can disable the Adobe Reader plugin in Firefox and use the Adobe Reader program or Preview instead.
- Firefox > Preferences > Applications > Adobe PDF document : Use Adobe Reader
Thank you so much! (Until the next upgrade. I think that Adobe is sending me "reminders to upgrade..)
