From that link above I get:
+(A) View a PDF File With Safari+
+1 Go to a Web page that displays a PDF link.+
+2 Click on the link. Safari will open up the PDF file into your Safari window.+
+3 View the contents of the PDF file by scrolling down the page.+
+(B) Download a PDF File+
+1 Open up Safari and go to a Web page that offers a link to a PDF file.+
+2 Hold down the 'Control' button and click on the PDF link in the Web page (or right-click if you have the right kind of mouse).+
+3 Choose the option 'Download Linked File' from the pull down menu that appears. This will download the file directly to your desktop.+
+(C) Open a PDF File in Preview+
+1 Open up a PDF file in your browser window.+
+2 Hold down the 'Control' button and click anywhere on the PDF document in the Safari window.+
+3 Choose the option 'Open File with Preview.app' from the pull down menu.+
A - doesn't work. I get a grey screen. Sometimes it asks which prog I want to use and then have to navigate to Reader. But, unlike Windows, it never remembers that choice!
B - it often doesn't download a thing. And the rest of that workaround is a ridiculous thing to have to do every time you want to view a .pdf file!

Currently Being ModeratedJan 7, 2011 5:29 PM (in response to cougar001)I have this same issue with 10.6.6 on a macbook pro. Very annoying. I am pretty sure it use to work right.
I am open to any ideas on how to go about making this work again?

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 19, 2011 5:00 AM (in response to Martin Joseph)I'm another one whose been having the same problem. I've used Safari's PDF plugin for ages and not had problems. Suddenly I'm having to download with FireFox. Anyone know of a way that I can tell Safari to just download the thing and open in Preview instead? That would be MUCH better...MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.6.6), Safari 5.0.3
