Opening a pdf file (like a product manual) in Safari sometimes results in Quicktime briefly opening

and leaving me with the first page, and not allowing access to all the other

pages of that file.  What's the story?


I tried dragging that file to the Adobe app in my dock, and it didn't work.

    Try this...  right or control click a PDF file you have stored on the drive then click Get Info.

    Select Adobe from the pop up menu next to:  Open with

    Then click: Change All


    You can also try deleting the PDF Browser Plug-in from /Library/Internet Plug-Ins.

    Hi Carolyn, thanks for trying to help.

    I did what you suggested, but no joy!  It is a funny file that says:  @   on the icon on my desktop.


    It still opens by quicktime if I click on the desktop, but if I drag it to the adobe icon in the dock it opens a dialogue box that says it can't open this kind of file.


    I checked the library, but there's no plugins listed.
