I just downloaded Mozilla as browser due to the many issues with IE. Now when attaching PDF files or trying to read PDF files they show up as a Mozilla icon or do not open with Adobe Acrobat.

Hi bboedeke,

That is because Firefox is set as default program for opening .pdf files by Windows.

There are two ways to change it.


Right click on any pdf file --> choose "Open With" --> choose "Choose Default Program" --> now choose the application that you want to set as default for opening .pdf (in this case, Adobe reader.)

I did that and more to try and alleviate the issues. I finally had to uninstall Mozilla... that fixed all the issues. Thanks.
