Problems opening pdf files in Firefox

Some RPILMS users have reported problems displaying PDF files when using Firefox. One fix is to disable the Adobe Acrobat plug-in by following these steps.

  1. Start Firefox
  2. Select Tools, Add-ons from the Firefox menu bar.
  3. In the Add-ons window, click on the Plugins tab.
  4. In the Adobe Acrobat box, click on the Disable button.
  5. Close the Add-ons window and go to the RPILMS.

PDF files will now download and give you the option of opening or saving the file. Select Open to display the PDF file in a separate Acrobat window.

 By default, Firefox uses a Download Manager when downloading files. To simplify downloading files, you can disable the download manager by following these steps.

  1. Start Firefox
  2. Select Tools, Options from the Firefox menu bar.
  3. In the Options window, click on the Main tab.
  4. In the Downloads section, uncheck Show Downloads window when downloading a file option.
  5. Click OK and go to the RPILMS.
