    The referenced page above for Internet explorer 9 provides no information to be able to open a web-based PDF directly in Reader or Acrobat instead of within the web browser. Why was this option removed from version XI? Please provide the explicit steps to do so.

    If your using a Mac with this problem The Acrobat PDF viewer is broken.

    You'll have to use with FireFox or SeaMonkey an extension called PDF.js. And you won't be able to fill out forms using it.

     

    There also is PDF Browser Plugin from Schubert. Forms will open but buttons setup to go to URLS emails don't work.

    Adobe had had an issue with this for at least the last 3 or so, major versions. And seem uninterested in fixing it.

    Start Internet Explorer. Open Menu Tools>Manage add-ons

    In the middle left side under Show: select 'All add-ons'

    Disable Adobe PDF Reader

    Thanks for your reply. I had already stumbled upon that solution, myself. Previously, in version X and lower, disabling the Adobe PDF Reader add-on in IE9 kept web-based PDFs from being recoginzed at all. That begs the question, why the f%@! didn't Adobe explain this change in Reader's web-based documentation instead of sending people to the Microsoft site, which has no information at all? Unbelievable!

    I have the same problem as Yoyo2001 but disabling the Adobe PDF Reader add-on did not fix my problem. I use IE9 and upgaded to Reader 11.0. Just can not believe that I can not open a pdf file that is sent to me via e-mail. Unbelievable. Any ideas for me?

    Even clicking on a link to a PDF file from a "pinned" site (which, according to Microsoft, isn't supposed to be able to run with add-ons) causes the PDF file to open in the browser.

     

    I'm using IE10 on Windows 8 Pro x64. I remember reading that Microsoft integrated Adobe Flash into IE10...I think they did the same with Adobe Reader. I just found out that pinned sites in IE10 can be used to view Flash videos, so it would seem that I am correct. Does anyone else agree with me?

    Disabling both plugins in Chrome worked for me. For links that lead directly to PDF files in IE, right-clicking a link, selecting "Save target as...", then clicking "Open" forces the PDF files to open directly in Adobe Reader rather than in IE.

    Some mysterious update must have occurred since my last post. Disabling the Adobe plugin in Internet Explorer 10 works fine for me now.

    I had XI Pro running fine, but had to replace my HD (C:). When I reinstalled XI Pro, find I can no longer add live URL links to PDFs that I download. Have I overlooked a security  setting somewhere?

    Thanks for any assistance.

    I think Safari and I know Chrome does have their own bult in PDF Viewer. The one in Chrome does allow for filling out forms and buttons that go to a URL Work. Right now the Only Web Browser That allows for clicking buttons and Filling forms is Chrome and they don't even use Adobe's Plugins.

    No the Adobe plugins do not work in following Browsers on a Mac.

     

    Opera

    Opera Next

    Camino

    FireFox

    SeaMonkey

    OmniWeb

    iCab

    Safari

    Aurora

     

    Chrome and Maxthon  use the same internal PDF engine not related to adobe, and can fillout forms and buttons work as they are supposed to and  have no adverse affects.

    Reader XI does not open in IE 10. It appears in the add-ons as "enabled."

    IE 10.0.9200.16618 with  Acrobat 11.0.3

    Manage Add-ons / Tools and Extensions

    I had to set Show: to "Run without permission" in order to expose the Adobe PDF Reader extension.

    Disabling it lets you open a PDF in the reader

    Enabling it lets you open a PDF in the browser

    The extension was not visible with Show: set to "All add-ons"

     

    Hope that's helpful

    Adobe Reader has no connection to viewing PDFs in Chrome.
