We just got a new website. None of us who work here can open pdfs from our site in a browser (at least not automatically), even though we all open other sites' pdfs in a browser automatically. So we're thinking it's something wrong with our site, but the developer says he hasn't a clue. When we get the download box, we can open in a particular browser, but it opens from a saved temprorary file (not an actual link). Links are available by right clicking. We are all using Adobe 9.
2. Tried "Repair Adobe Reader."
3. Also, the download box will not let us check "do this automatically from now on."
Can we know for certain that this problem originates with Adobe Reader? Or, is it possible the developer screwed something up?
Your post makes me think of MIME types. It is a setting on your web server that tells your browser how to deal with a certain type of file.
Maybe this needs to be set? This is just a guess. Take a look at this link: http://www.w3schools.com/media/media_mimeref.asp
