Bug - Safari 5.1.5 breaks the keyword search of PDF files displayed on Safari.



After updating to Safari 5.1.5 with Adobe Acrobat Pro 10.1.3 on Mac OS X 10.6.8, it is not possible to search for keywords in PDF documents displayed on Safari.


I understand that it is a bug. Is there any way to fix it?

    Try deleting a plugin...


    Open the Finder. From the menu bar click Go > Go to Folder


    Typs this:    /Library/Internet Plug-Ins


    Move the Adobe PDF Browser plugin  (or PDF Browser plugin) to the Trash.


    Quit then relaunch Safari to test.


    If that doesn't help, back to the Finder menu.


    Go > Go to Folder


    Type this:  ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safarfi/Cache.db


    Move the Cache.db file to the Trash.


    Quit then relaunch Safari to test.

    That fixed it. Many thanks!


    I had two plugins:




    I closed Safari, deleted both plugins, opened Safari and it worked as expected searching inside PDF files.


    THANKS !!!


    I wanted to click both "This helped me" and "This solved my question" but after clicking the first one I cannot click the second or undo the first to click the second. I also clicked the "Liked" link.
