    Help! I am being driven bats by a problem and have run out of ideas. I have the latest version of Firefox and the latest version of Adobe reader. I cannot open .pdf files in my browser. I just get a blank screen. I cannot download the .pdf files either. I have checked the default program settings and Adobe is not even listed as an option. I have no trouble opening .pdf files that already on my computer. I have tried the Firefox>tools>applications and it shows Acrobat as the default program (in Firefox - and all other .pdf files) but...

    Hi, welcome to my vanity thread. I am having a problem downloading .pdf files on Firefox. If I click on a .pdf link all I get is a blank window in response. I am currently using Adobe Acrobat reader as my .pdf viewer, but Firefox seems to be oblivious to its existence. I have checked Firefox addons, and there seem to be hundreds of .pdf related addons, but I don't know which if any I should choose. Any advice on how to get Firefox to download/display/print/save .pdfs would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, you guys are the best.BTW: I have to...

The material has not been posted on the Internet anywhere, with the exception of less than ten articles out of perhaps 1,500. I want to post many of the articles on Free Republic in the Religious forum. Because accurate posting of the articles requires a lot of formatting, I want to post the PDF files that I have created.

    A suspected member of the Al Qaeda terrorist group, arrested in May last year in Germany, was found with a memory stick hidden in his underwear. Police discovered the stick contained a password-protected folder with pornographic videos inside it, but suspicious computer forensic experts thought there must be more. After weeks of analysis, they determined that one of the pornographic videos contained concealed documents detailing Al Qaeda operations and plans. The files were hidden in the video file through a process called steganography or concealed writing. The term steganography includes methods used for centuries, such as invisible ink, but now...

    If you're an organisation that is making public an internal document, you best make sure that you have deleted or blacked out any personal, confidential or actionable information. The act of obscuring the sensitive information is known as "redaction", and - for obvious reasons - needs to be done properly if you care about privacy and avoiding a potentially damaging data leak. In the old days - before PDFs and Word documents - you might have redacted a document with a thick black marker pen, ensuring that anyone who made a photocopy of the document wouldn't be able to see...

    E-mails containing malicious PDF files have been putting computers at risk since Friday, Finnish security software firm F-Secure said on Saturday. "The e-mails sent in bulk looked like credit card statements, and contained an attachment called 'report.pdf'," its Chief Research Officer Mikko Hypponen said in a statement. When such PDF files are viewed on vulnerable machines, they start downloading software from servers in Malaysia or Sweden, which are now being cleaned, he said. "There will be more such attacks." "We are worried about this case, as PDF attachments are typically not filtered at e-mail gateways." A security update for Adobe...

    A day after Adobe patched a serious security hole in its Reader and Acrobat programs, miscreants are flooding email inboxes with malware-tainted PDF files that try to remotely hijack vulnerable computers. The malware, identified by Symantec researchers as Trojan.Pidief.A, is included in PDF files attached to a "fair number of emails," according to this blog entry. The spam typically targets specific businesses or organizations. Adobe issued a patch for the vulnerability on Monday. The revelation of in-the-wild exploits underscores the importance of updating immediately. A patch for Reader is available here; an Acrobat update is available here. Emails typically arrive...

    Imagine a world without Photoshop or PDF. Heck, without digital fonts and desktop publishing and the ability to print graphics on a desktop printer. Imagine a world without Adobe. As Adobe Systems celebrates it 25th anniversary, it's important to recognize how much Adobe is responsible for the way we communicate today. Back in 1982, two enterprising and talented computer scientists left Xerox PARC to form their own company. John Warnock and Chuck Geschke had been working on a computer language that would enable the printing of smooth detailed graphics, liberating graphic designers from X-Acto knives and Rubylith.

    Does anyone know a way to save a webpage (html) as a PDF File without the software automatically adding in page breaks?

I have tried by using the "Create PDF" function in the Adobe Acrobat software. That does allow me to create a single page up to 200 inches, but I want it larger than that. In short, I want the PDF file to be a WYSIWYG (what you...

    Amid threats of a lawsuit from Adobe, Microsoft acknowledged Friday that it would remove support for saving files in PDF from Office 2007, as well as dropping its own rival format XPS from the productivity suite and Windows Vista. The changes follow a breakdown of talks between the two technology giants after Microsoft announced last year it would include native PDF publishing with the release of Office 2007. The feature has long been a top request from customers, the company said at the time, and other office suites have the capability. But Adobe was unhappy with the move and a...

    The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Adobe is poised to sue Microsoft over Microsoft's planned PDF support in Office 2007. Microsoft allegedly is removing the export-to-PDF capability at Adobe's request. It's not surprising that Adobe Systems is worried about Microsoft's growing encroachments into its core markets. But now Adobe is said to be ready to take its dissatisfaction to the courts. The Wall Street Journal reported on June 2 that Adobe is poised to launch an antitrust suit in Europe against Microsoft, following the break-down of four-month-long talks over Microsoft's Office 2007 PDF plans. Microsoft announced in October 2005...

No, instead, Microsoft quietly squeaked out the news on a Saturday afternoon in Microsoft Office Program Manager Brian Jones' Weblog. Could it...

Portions of the document had been "blacked out" by electronic means.

I don't mind doing it, but if the document had many headings,...

    I know that "regular" PDF files, when viewed via Acrobat Reader, are read-only and non-modifiable. However, I have worked with other files (I think they're also PDF) that allowed me to type onto them (specifically, allowed me to type onto specific fields of a form). I realize that I cannot save the changes, but being able to type onto the form then lets me print it out with my typing there. How is this capability achieved? Is it a function of the program that CREATES the PDF file, or that of the viewer, or both? Thanks.

However, as established in my article here, Colonel Robert "Buzz" Patterson, who carried the “nuclear football” for President Clinton, wrote in his book last year that he saw a PDF to Clinton in 1996 discussing the Islamic terrorists’ plot to use commercial airliners as weapons. Assuming the Newsweek article is accurate, why isn’t the 9/11 Commission following up on this? Why isn’t the 9/11 Commission requesting access to the...
