Hi guys, a friend pointed me in the direction of this place so thought i'd give it a go!

I'm having a few problems with a website, it's trying to load a pdf timetable for me in Firefox, but keeps closing, telling me that adobe reader 8.1 has stopped working - so i cant see the pdf.

Ive been to Adobe and downloaded all the new 9.2 versions, and ive definitely uninstalled 8.1, but it seems that Firefox is attempting to 'use' 8.1 to open it, but obviously it cant.

Any ideas guys?

Thanks

Bomba.

Did you try to go to Tools>Options>Content tab and click the button next to how you want FF to handle certain file types?

Cheers mate, can't get it to open in Firefox but i've told it to just open Adobe Reader 9.2 as a separate application, which will do!

Thanks

You're welcome. Guess there's always more than one way to skin a cat. :)
