I have the exact same problem. I hope we can both get a answer! But I have to download everything that has pdf file. I dont know what is going on with Adobe Acrobat Reader. Wish I would have never updated. Didn't have this problem until I got 9 version.
Hey cwren, I figured it out. Go to My Computer'>Tools>Folder Options>File Types and select PDF as the file type. Then, click "browse" to select Adobe Reader (whichever version you have loaded) as the program to open PDF files. Works perfectly now!
Thanks for trying to help but this did not work for me. Im running windows vista with aol internet. And every time I go to a pdf file it downloads it to my computer and then I can open the file. It will not open on a web page it downloads it. I have tried everything nothing works. I'm gladd you where able to figure it out. I guess I will have to wait and see if anyone else can figure my problem out. Thanks for the info though.
Download the free version of Foxit Reader. It is about 3mb. Then PDF files will open in your browser window.
Try "Uninstalling" the prior versions of Reader, then install version 9. Make sure 9 is the only version left, then it seems to be happy.
Douglas Nichols' solution worked for me ... had the same problem and tried to resolve it by uninstalling and then reinstalling, which did not work ... Doug's folder options setting tip did the trick. Thanks.
