If the Adobe Acrobat viewer doesn't display PDF files inside your Web browser as expected, try Solution 1 or update to the latest version of the Acrobat viewer. Some PDF's use security features that may not run in older versions.
Disable "view in browser" feature
Try disabling the "View In Browser" or "Web Browser Integration" feature in your Adobe Acrobat viewer (for plug-in and standard version). Doing this will force your Acrobat viewer to display PDF outside your browser in a separate window. In most cases this will fix your problem. Shown below is how to disable "Web Browser Integration".
Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 / 7.0 / 8.0 (plug-in)
Go to <Edit> <Preferences>
Go to <Internet>
* Remove "Check Mark"
* Press <Ok>
* Close window
Go to browser and try again to view the PDF.
When selecting the PDF file this time, you should get a window similar to the one above (may look different depending on the platform you are running).
Select <Open it> and a " second window" should open and display the PDF.
Check Security Options
If you use Internet Explorer 5.x, make sure that its security options recognize the Acrobat Control:
Note: This procedure changes Internet Explorer's security options for all ActiveX Controls. If you prefer to use stricter security, do not complete these steps.
In Internet Explorer for Windows:
1. Exit from Internet Explorer 5.x and your Acrobat viewer.
2. Start Internet Explorer 5.x.
3. Choose Tools > Internet Options and click the Security tab.
4. Choose the appropriate Web content zone for the type of PDF file you're trying to open (e.g. Internet or Local Intranet).
5. Click Custom Level to specify the security setting for this zone.
6. Select Enable for the options labeled "Download unsigned ActiveX controls" and "Initialize and script ActiveX Controls not marked as safe."
7. Click OK and then click OK again.
Very large PDF's may cause problems
If the PDF file is 4 MB or larger, the Web browser may time out before it finishes downloading the file; ask the provider of the file to optimize it in Acrobat Exchange or Acrobat 4.0x. For more information on file optimization, refer to the Acrobat Online Guide.

Can't view PDFs
Try these solutions first
Attempt the following solutions in order.
* Restart your computer and try opening the PDF again
* Open a local copy of a PDF in the web browser
* Download the PDF again
* Delete temporary Internet files
* Deselect and then reselect the Display PDF In Browser preference
* Try a different web site
* Install the latest version of Adobe Reader or Acrobat
* Remove all previous versions of Adobe Reader or Acrobat, then reinstall
* View the PDF in a 32-bit version of the web browser
1. Restart your computer and try opening the PDF again
Sometimes restarting can resolve common issues.
2. Open a local copy of a PDF in the web browser
Determine if your web browser can open the PDF from your local hard drive rather than from the web:
1. In your web browser, choose File > Open (or Open File).
2. Choose All Files from the Files Of Type pop-up menu (Windows)
3. Click Browse
4. Select a PDF file you have saved previously, and then click Open to open the PDF file. If Acrobat or Adobe Reader displays the file but doesn't display it on the web, the web server has a problem serving the PDF file. Contact the webmaster of the site from which you downloaded the PDF file.
3. Download the PDF again
Try to download the PDF again from the website. If the PDF was sent to you, try having the person send it to you again.
4. Delete temporary Internet files (Internet Explorer and Firefox)
In Internet Explorer, delete the temporary files that Internet Explorer creates:
1. In Internet Explorer, select Tools > Internet Options.
2. Click Delete Files in the General tab, and then click OK when prompted.
In Firefox, delete the temporary files that Firefox creates:
1. In Firefox, select Tools > Clear Private Data.
2. Deselect all options except Cache.
3. Click Clear Private Data Now.
5. Deselect and then reselect the Display PDF In Browser preference
1. In Adobe Reader or Acrobat, choose Edit > Preferences.
2. Select Internet.
3. Deselect Display PDF In Browser, and then click OK.
4. Choose Edit > Preferences > Internet, select Display PDF In Browser, and then click OK.
6. Try a different web site
Try to view a PDF file located on a different web site (a different web server). For example, try to view the Acrobat Help PDF file from the Adobe website at help.adobe.com/en_US/acrobat/pro/using/acrobat_X_pro_help.pdf. The Adobe web server is configured to let browsers open PDF files. If Acrobat or Adobe Reader can display PDF files from the Adobe website, the other website's server could be configured incorrectly. It's also likely that its server software don't support page-at-a-time downloading. Contact that server's webmaster for assistance.
7. Install the latest version of Adobe Reader or Acrobat
Always use the latest version of Adobe Reader or Acrobat. Before you install an update or upgrade, make sure that the system meets the requirements.
For updates, check the Adobe website at www.adobe.com/support/downloads. You can purchase upgrades from Adobe Authorized Resellers and from Adobe directly by visiting the Adobe website at http://www.adobe.com/store, or by calling Customer Service at 800-272-3623.
8. Remove all versions of Acrobat, and then reinstall
Adobe doesn't support multiple versions of Adobe Reader or Acrobat on the same computer. Multiple versions simultaneously installed can lead to software conflicts and errors. Only install one version of either Reader or Acrobat. Uninstall all versions of Adobe Reader or Acrobat and then reinstall only one version of either Reader or Acrobat.
9. View the PDF in a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer, not a 64-bit version
Acrobat X does not support opening PDFs in a 64-bit version of Internet Explorer. Start the 32-bit version of the browser. By default, the 32-bit version of Internet Explorer runs when you start the browser from any one of the following locations:
* The Quick Launch toolbar
* The desktop
* The Start menu
* A hyperlink or a file type associated with Internet Explorer
To determine the version of Internet Explorer that you are running, click About Internet Explorer on the Help menu of Internet Explorer. On a 64-bit version of Internet Explorer, the About Internet Explorer window includes a 64-bit descriptor label. The 32-bit version of Internet Explorer does not display a bit-level descriptor.
