Problem 1: Using Mac OS X v. 10.4.11 with either Firefox 3.5.2 or Safari 4.0.3 OR when working from my desktop -- when I view a PDF document and click "pages" view on the left, the pages do not appear on the left hand side as they have in older versions. Once I click "pages" other things go wrong. The cursor then seems to become a select tool or something, and either selects text or drags blue boxes (s if selecting area of the screen) wherever I move the cursor. The document will no longer scroll up and down at my choosing -- it starts scrolling and keeps going.
The only way I can stop this is to exit Adobe 9 completely and then reopen the document and avoid clicking "pages" (and I really need to use that feature)
Problem 2: In Firefox or Safari, when I download a PDF document from, say, Bank of America, I see only a blank page.
Problem 3: In Safari (can't remember if it happens in Firefox too) - sometimes I cannot quit a program or quit Safari. It's as if the screen freezes at that point.
Several times I have uninstalled ALL Adobe items on my computer. Emptied trash. Re-downloaded Adobe 9. Restarted computer. Same problems every time.
I would be HAPPY to install an older version that works; the problem is that many sites I visit insist that I must have Adobe Flash Player.
Can anyone help? Please make it in plain English as I am not a techie like most of you.
