Thanks for your detailed response. I did exactly as written, saved the file, opened it in the browser and it didn't work.
The first time I clicked the link, it opened in the same window.
The second time I clicked the link, the link was dead.
I see many people writing about this, but I can't get it to work

Most browsers use their own PDF plugins now, and many of them are sub-standard, especially when it comes to things like form fields, links and scripts. The only way to be certain it will work is to open the file using Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader.
