How did you create the fdf/xfdf file? Could you provide a sample file where it previously worked?

In earlier versions of Acrobat Reader this was working.
Did you mean to say that Acrobat Reader used to open the file and import the FDF data as well? Was the file opened in Acrobat Reader or in Internet Explorer or Safari?
I have the same problem. The FDF file was opened in the newest version of Adobe Reader DC. The error message is:
This import operation is not supported because the reference document is on the internet. If you want to perform the current operation, you must recreate this file after downloading the reference document.
Then i have opened the FDF-file with Notepad. I made a copy of the path and pasted it into the internetbrowser. The PDF was downloaded succesfully. On my local harddrive, i have created a folder and placed the downloaded PDF into to the folder. Then i have adjusted the path in the FDF-file to the PDF-file in my newly created folder on my local harddrive. Saved the file. Opened the FDF-file. Then it worked!
It seems there is a problem related to http and https. Can this be solved?
Looks like another example of Adobe deleting functionality that people have been using, at their recommendation, for perhaps 15 years, without a note or explanation, in the interests of security. What next: "Sorry, we do not open PDF files for security reason. Thank you for choosing Acrobat Reader!"?
Yes that is correct. No browser; I'am talking about Acrobat Reader.
