Doesn't work. I tried that several times, even removed all plugin in both library. Still can not view pdf file in safari, it always downloads.
I suspect acrobat pref may have been the cause. I tried installing it, and did find the setting set to use acrobat instead of browser, but the option is dimmed and no way could I uncheck it. Uninstalled everything adobe, and removed anything with adobe and any pdf plugin. Still the same.
Any other ideas.
I had to take all the Adobe software out of the Library folder that relates to the Safari - if you do a search - you will find the exact location and answer to this problem - once I tooke out all those files - my safari was able to open PDF files again.....but now I have a bigger problem....all my files got taken out by some kind of virus and NOBODY has replied to any of my posts to help me.
There are two reasons why nobody has replied to your other message:
(1) No one has any way of knowing why your files seem to have disappeared; and
(2) If you don't have current backups, no one can do anything about it.
An expert in data recovery might be able to recover some of your files, but such services are very expensive.
