I am switching from Internet Explorer to Mozilla and have run into a problem. In IE, links to PDF documents opened up in the browser window; how can I get this to work in Mozilla?
Specifically, I'm using Mozilla 1.3a and Adobe Acrobat FULL 5.05. I need to view an online PDF inside my browser window so that the online capabilities and routing are enabled. When I click on a link to a PDF, I get a file download prompt. It defaults to Acrobat so I hit OK. However, Mozilla then launches Acrobat with the PDF separately, which makes online routing functions unavailable. I did search this forum but was unable to find this problem thus far. Can you please advise?
Just copy nppdf32.dll from Acrobat\Reader\Browser folder to plugins folder of Mozilla.
Live long and prosper!
For me, it works without any dll copied (for some time Mozilla automatically detects the Acrobat plugin, i must keep in the plugins folder only the dll for flash). I think the server where the document is stored is not properly configured and not send the corect MIME Type.

The Adobe installer has a tendency to put things all over your system: the plugin is probably being detected even though it's in a different folder.
Thank you so much for your response. I copied the file as outlined above and now Mozilla opens my PDF in the browser window. I am very pleased that I can now use Mozilla at work (rather than IE).
hi all, i have a similar problem, just stated in a new post under "General", because i cant solve my problem with
copying the nppdf32.dll file to plugins, ist already there, so i hope for someone to have an answer why moz doesnt open the *pdf - file - document.
There's a preference in Acrobat itself which chooses whether PDF links will open in browser windows. You need to make sure it's set to the right option.
You might try REMOVING the "Help App" associated to PDF ... and clicking ona another PDF web file .. to re-associate it to Acrobat ... There may be an issue with the way in which it was associated.
(Preferences > Navigator > Helper Apps)
I think I found a bug. Do me a favor. Open an Acrobat document in a navigator window. Then close it. ctrl-alt-del to bring up the task manager and tell me if acrord32.exe is still open, sucking up a nice big 24MB chunk of your memory. I think its a bug. not sure if it happens in other browsers. IE is too screwy right now to try it.
Seems like there are many people with questions about PDF and Acrobat Reader. I've linked to all threads concerning this subject in a thread in the Mozilla General forum, so people with issues can keep track of everything which has been said.
