Last week, for no apparent reason that I am aware of, I stopped being able to download pdf files. Acrobat Reader no longer opens up and the web pages stay blank. I removed that Acrobat Reader, and downloaded the appropriate version again, and I still get nothing, nada, when I try to download whether or no the Reader application is open. I am able to open existing pdf files. Aaaargh? please help.

Any reason you are using Adobe at all?

I'd download something like AppCleaner (or another uninstall app), install Adobe PDF then drag it to AppCleaner so it can try to rid your system of all PDF files. Then reboot.

Preview does a decent job of showing PDF files IMHO. If you need more then after the uninstall try to reinstall Adobe.

Thanks! I ended up deleting an Adobe update and now it works fine.
