    how to turn off "read in browser"

    me, too

      I found a discussion of how to turn off the "read PDF in browser" function for a Windows machine, but I'm on a Mac. I just installed Reader 10.1.0, and find that it now defaults to "read in browser" with no way to turn that off, at least that I can see. Is there a way, or do I have to purge my system of Reader and use Preview to read PDFs in the future?

          AHA! I found it: one must delete the file "AdobePDFViewer.plugin" from the Internet Plugins folder in the hard drive level Library folder.

          This will require an administrator username and password, but does the trick.

            Ok, deleting that file kills the "read inside browser" function, but to my vast annoyance, Safari still insists on opening a tab in which to read the damn PDF, although all that is displayed now is a black dark gray page.


            How the blazes do I KILL once and for all this silliness about sending a PDF to Reader in my browser? I do not EVER want to read a PDF in my browser, I ONLY want to download 'em to disk.


            Help! Anyone?
