Currently Being ModeratedSep 6, 2009 10:29 PM (in response to c3sium)No one have an answer? I'm pretty sure this worked fine in Safari 3.x its since 4.x that the problem has come. I can't view PHP pages that normally make my pdf's...

Currently Being ModeratedSep 7, 2009 6:58 AM (in response to DaddyPaycheck)thank you for your reply. I think this is more of a safari issue, because I can't access it on friends machines that have not upgraded to SL. It might be on the server side although I have asked the help people at webforms and they deny it. It seems to be the way Safari handles PHP forms, but Firefox does the same thing (and never ever worked for me).
I'm at a loss, hoping someone has an answer, as I do really need thisMBP Unibody 2.53, 4 Gigs RAM, 320 HD, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 7, 2009 4:24 PM (in response to c3sium)I seem to have resolved the issue by doing a "get info" for safari and checking "run in 32 bit mode". Opens up these files fine now...MBP Unibody 2.53, 4 Gigs RAM, 320 HD, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 12, 2009 11:42 AM (in response to c3sium)I've tried switching to 32-bit mode, but still can't get WEBForms 4.4 to work with Snow Leopard. Doesn't work with either Safari or Firefox. Any thoughts?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 12, 2009 12:33 PM (in response to GaryLittleRLP)OK, I think I've finally solved this puzzle. You do, indeed, have to run Snow Leopard's Safari in 32-bit mode.
But there was an important additional step I had to perform...
In my case, since I upgraded to Snow Leopard at the same time as I purchased my first Intel-based Mac, and I had merged all my old files from the old PowerPC-based iBook, I also had to install the Intel-based Adobe Reader plug-in. (After the merge, the old PowerPC-based plug-in was present but, of course, it does not run on an Intel-based Mac. Not sure why Adobe doesn't provide a universal binary in the first place.) To get the right plug in, I downloaded and installed the latest Adobe Reader. I then ran Adobe Reader and chose Repair Adobe Reader Installation from the Help menu. I then checked the box "Adobe PDFViewer Safari Plugin" and clicked Continue.
As a result of all this, the correct plug-in is installed and it gets control when WEBForms runs. All is well once again.
Action item for Adobe: create a 64-bit version of the PDFViewer plug-in.
