Since we all sometimes check everything else except the power cord, I submit this possible solution for those using the Adobe Customization Wizard to create a deployable package:
In the "Online and Acrobat.com Features" section of the Customization Wizard, ensure that the option "When launching PDF in Internet Explorer, prompt user with Open/Save dialog" is unchecked... along with setting "Display PDF in browser" to "Enable" (or "Enable and Lock").

I suppose I've tried everything under the sun at this point to resolve:
1. I've tried all the adjustments that have been mentioned but I still have my browser shut down every time I get into a pdf within the browser.
2. I've tried to uninstall 9 but there's nothing to recognize it to uninstall it even though it is there becuase I use it.
Tried add/remove programs
Tried Windows Install Clean-up
3. I can't even find anything but an upgrade of Reader 8 which it won't let me update to because I don't have a version to update from.
Anyone have any ideas? I'm about at the end of this whole adobe road...
sorry I abandoned this forum for a long time. returned here only to check up if Adobe fixed the problem ... unfortunately deployed 9.1.2 update via AD/GPO (it makes a re-install and deletes exisiting keys from registry) to our LAN before reading thread hehe ... seems issue is still open (reader cannot open in any browser despite checking all boxes in Preferences).
however I see that still same registry patches fix the problem.
I uploaded a ZIP archive with registry patches ready to use to MediaFire, download it, extract and select either the x86 (win 2000/XP/Vista) or x64 (XP x64/Vista x64) and double-click it. agree for adding information to your system's registry. restart windows and see if it works for you.
ZIP file is free of viruses, etc. SAFE. I tried attaching thiz zip archive here, bu forums do not allow me to.
Corporations still can use Adobe Customization Wizard 9 for adding same missing Acrobat handler to destination registry (pointing to adobe reader executable) as deployment fix. on computers having Acrobat already installed such registry key already exists and points to Acrobat executable, once you apply registry patch it will overwrite switching to Adobe Reader 9 as a default PDF handler for browsers (not much of a difference).
No more problems with the 8.12 version
Uninstalled the 9.2 and installed this old one, all is going fine.
I'll wait for the resolution of the problem in the 9.2 version, incredible that adobe issued the 9.2 version with the same problems of the 9.1 version!! Are they going to act as microsoft?? poor us...
