Firefox 2x and Acrobat 8
Is there a special trick to get Acrobat 8 to read a PDF file while using Firefox 2x
I just installed Acrobat 8 Professional, and I cannot get the program to open an Acrobat document; while I am using Firefox 2x

Denyse, do yourself a favor and uninstall Adobe reader and then replace it with Foxit. Foxit is a solid Acrobat substitute that is lightning fast.

PDF Download is a Firefox extension that solves the problems everyone has about handling PDF files with Firefox. PDF Download is not a PDF plugin: you still need to have installed the Adobe or the FoxIt PDF plugin if you want to open a PDF inside Firefox.
Are you annoyed to click on a link and then wait a lot of time just because the PDF plugin is loading?

She's using Adobe Professional not Adobe Reader.

Correct Conan, it is the newest version. I was told by a friend to just go into my Config and see where File types are handled, which I did. I clicked on the top button, which already knew that Adobe 8 Professional was installed. It turned out to be that easy. It comes up VERY fast, and all works great. I can now created my own PDF's right from the screen.
I appreciate everyone's input.
