I had the same problem. I think I've created at least a dozen new profanities in the process.
It turns out that when you try to open a PDF in the browser but get the download box, if you just click the Do this every time box and let it open in Acrobat, the PDF extension will be added to the list. [I should add that for some reason, 63 new tabs opened before I managed to shut down my computer.] When restarted and went back to the list, though, sure enough, the PDF extension was there. I changed the action to the Use this plug-in ==> Adobe Acrobat, and voila! the PDFs once again open in the browser.
I can't even tell you how many hours it took me to get here. I saw it in another forum (Firefox). Sorry, but I don't remember where it was.
Hope this helps you as well. Post back if I didn't explain it well enough...or if you, too, succeed. Maybe we should start a support group! ; )
I have Windows Vista, and the Reader will not open .pdf files attached to an email. I have uninstalled Reader twice and reinstalled it, nothing works. Help!
I don't know much about this stuff, and nothing about Vista, but just in case, what email program do you use?
I case it applies, I just saw a forum where the suggestion was this:
In Windows mail, Tools, Options, Security, uncheck "Do not allow attachments to be saved or open that could be a virus"
I use yahoo email, and the pdf files still won't open! Any suggestions? (They used to open, just stopped working one day). Don't know if it's a Windows Vista problem, but I sure don't like Vista!
