The system I'm running is Scientific Linux. PDF files, I need to open in a browser, are on the file server, but in the same folder as my html files, etc. So, in HTML I gave the link to some PDF to open it in the browser, however, Mozilla says it can't find the file by the given URL. Proper permissions to access the files are given. All is lowercase, no spelling error.

On Chrome, on the same computer, everything works fine. I've also tested on Windows, still Chrome or IE work without problem.

Any ideas?

The problem is fixed now.

Though I do not have a proper explanation, but all I did is just moved all the files for download to the same level as the html file, from where hfer links were working. And mozilla now can see the PDF-s !

In your browser do you have the mime type pdf associated with a program?

Thanks for your reply! I've checked the link, and everything is set to its normal form in my browser. Otherwise this particular case, the browser has no problems viewing PDF files, but here, when I try to open the PDF (using HTML code, say, href="downloads\file1.pdf" where "downloads" is a folder on the same level as the html file) then the error I am getting is this

Not Found

The requested URL (the name) was not found on this server.
