Hi,

I'm having some trouble with Safari opening PDF's. For some reason, when I click on a link I get the following message:

To view the full contents of this document, you need a later version of the PDF viewer. You can upgrade to the latest version of Adobe Reader from www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html
For further support, go to www.adobe.com/support/products/acrreader.html

I've upgraded the Adobe Reader that I have, however I'm still having this problem.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

    HI,

    Open Adobe Reader. Then from the Adobe Reader Menu Bar click Adobe/Preferences then select Internet in the panel on the left.

    On the right make sure: Display PDF in browser using: click the pop up menu and select: Adobe Reader.

    Relaunch Safari.

    If that didn't help, right or control click a PDF file you already have then click: Get Info. In the Get Info window click: Open with. Click the pop up menu and select: Adobe Reader

    Relaunch Safari.

    See this post by Adobe: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/509/cpsid_50983.html
    It will tell you how to get Safari 5.x to open a pfd file within a Safari window.
