Unless you need Adobe Acrobat Reader installed, move the app to the Trash.
Well, I do sometimes need Reader. And it works fine if I simply choose, outside Safari, to open a file in it rather than in Preview. Part of the problem may be that I've got two startup disks on my Mac and the other one (where I don't have this problem) has Adobe CS4 with Acrobat Pro installed and licensed. I can't license it on this startup because of Adobe's licensing limit.
Also, go to Safari/Preferences - General. Make sure Safari is set as your default browser.
Tried that, Carolyn. Seems to make no difference.
The exact message, btw, is "Before proceeding you must first launch Adobe Acrobat and accept the End User License Agreement.
defaults read com.apple.Safari WebKitOmitPDFSupport
Tried that. Didn't work. Got this back from terminal:
The domain/default pair of (com.apple.Safari, WebKitOmitPDFSupport) does not exist
or just lose the safari.plist & if that was it, pdf's will work again
Tried that. Still crashes.
All these ideas sound great. So far, I'm still in a bad way though.
same thing in a new account ?
Don't know. I'll try when I can.
What actually is there in Internet Plug ins ? (you can select them all, copy, and it'll paste just the names here)
