Using Safari 6.0.5, when I save a .pdf and then re-open the .pdf with Adbode Acrobat or Reader I see the following message: "There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired.".  If I try to print the .pdf directly from Safari I get a blank page.


I have seen references to removing AdobePDFviewerNPAPI.plugin, but I do not know how to remove the file.  Any help would be appreciated, I'm forced to use another browser (Chrome, in this case) to download and use .pdfs.
