when I try to open a pdf file downloaded using safri all I get is a dark gray page. If I right click the download button and press "download the file to downloads" it sometimes downloads the file though more often downloads the html page. If I do the same thing in other browsers such as chrome it works fine. Help please

    A standard thing to try:

     

    Go to /Library/Internet Plug-Ins and trash all Adobe stuff.

    From the Safari menu bar, select

    Besides the following, what plugins are listed?

    You didn't post the information I asked for. Please review the instructions and try again.
