I don't know if it will help, but to accept the license agreement just start Acrobat from Applications in the usual way. If you also have other versions and Adobe Reader installed, start and quit each in turn.
Having the same damn problem. Adobe recommended that I try these Forums……so here I am:
I also have Acrobat Pro 9 and Reader 11 installed and can use Pro to assemble PDFs, etc…but, for whatever reason, I cannot download and view the documents. I get the same danced black screen with the EULA text BUT I cannot find that anywhere on my HD…...
Mac OS 10.7.5 on a MacBook Pro running CS5 perfectly otherwise……HELP.
Do you by any chance have several Acrobat versions installed on your Mac? Start Reader 11 and go to Preferences->Internet. It will show you which PDF Viewer is used for opening PDFs in the browser. It also has a link to a help page that has instructions on how to choose PDF viewing app on Mac. After you know which app is responsible for viewing PDFs in the browser, launch it and open any PDF. You'll get EULA dialog if it had not been yet accepted. You can also follow instructions to change the PDF viewing app. I suggest to change in to Reader 11 since you have it installed. Also I suggest to upgrade to the latest (11.0.07) Reader version as it fixes some important bugs.
Thanks so much for your reply!
I already have Adobe Reader 11.0.7 and Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 installed.
Following your instructions, I then selected Reader as the desired Adobe product to open all PDFs. and save that choice. Still no difference, the same black screen and statement about the EULA shows up…
BTW, this is the website that I was accessing……note the link to download and print the pdf which triggers the EULA page.
and also downloaded the latest version of Reader via their link….but to no success…..
This all started by itself months ago, I did no newer installs or settings changes, none……
Any other thoughts?
Thanks so much,
