Yes, I know there are other posts on this topic and I've followed the advice on all the posts.
I spoke to Apple Care today as well...

Using Safari when I go to a website with an embedded PDF it comes up blank (black screen). I've tried with Firefox and it works no problem.
I've completely removed Safari, I've completely removed Adobe and all plugins with Apple Care. I reinstalled Safari... same problem. I reinstalled Adobe Reader... same problem.
I've gone through numerous posts. Updated Flip4Mac, changed preferences in preview, changed preferences in Adobe.

None of these options are working.
Apple Care said I should reinstall the OS. I've backed everything up, but reinstalling sounds a bit drastic to me. I thought I would try here and see if anyone had any other ideas.

Thanks for the help.
