It's been a while, but ever since I upadated to Safari 7.0.1 (or maybe even the version earlier), I've been unable to open any PDF documents inside of Safari. When I click on a link on Google linked to a PDF document, a grey page shows up with the message "Adobe Reader blocked for this website" I tried clicking the message and a panel dropped down asking me whether I trust the website or not. But even after I clicked Trust and the page reloaded it self the PDF still doesn't show up.


Anyoen know how to get around this? I know Apple got rid of native support for many web applications because of security threat but there should be a way to put it back in right?

    I've done that multiple times.  I have reinstalled Java, Reinstalled Adobe reader

    and still received this message and when I click on it I get this:

    Now, if I go to Chrome or Firefox, the pdf opens no problem


    As an aside, My safari also does not save anything I click for a Bookmark

    Any suggestions?
