You did not mention what browser you use and whether you use Acrobat / Reader to view pdf's and what version.
- In Acrobat / Reader, go to the Edit menu and select Preferences. Under 'Internet', make sure the box for 'Display PDF in browser' is unchecked. Click OK to save your changes.
- In IE, go to the Tools menu and click on 'Manage Add-ons'. Then, click on Adobe Reader and click the Disable button. This should disable the built-in Reader in IE, so PDFs will have to open in Reader instead of in the browser.
IE: 8 & 9
Adobe Acrobat Pro/Acrobat Reader 10.x & 11.x
Chrome: work fine
So the answer is to manually enable and disable websites based on whether the pdfs open within the browser. That doesn't seem like a great long-term solution to have have our users to manually enable / disable browser integration. We have web applications that work better with browser integration turned on. Is this something that Adobe will fix or is it an IIS/IE issue.
It appears the Adobe removed the #1 config option that you lised in the new 11.x versions of both products. The manage Add-ons does not disable the browser integration on the new Adobe versions.
Please print your PDF File Using Adobe PDF Printer & then try to open it .
Also, Let me know how did you create those PDf files
The pdfs are Internet content used by various vendor websites. The multi-page pdfs documents start to download and then they lock-up in IE. They work fine in all other non IE browsers
My company is having the same issue. I agree that users should not be expected to enable/disable features on the browser. Adobe should address this issue.
