So, I’ve been having this problem for quite a while now. Whenever I would try to open a pdf file in FF the browser would crash and I;d get a crash report. I tried all their fixes with no joy. I have just been living with it. Using IE when I needed to open a pdf. Well, it did it to me again tonight so I decide to fix it for good. What I did isn’t actually a fix but more of a workaround.
- Open FireFox
- Go to Tools>Options in the top menu bar
- Type “adobe acrobat” in the search bar(w/o quotes)
- Change the Action for each item to “Use Adobe Reader…”
- Click OK
- Restart FireFox
That’s it. Now pdf’s will open in Acrobat instead of FF thereby avoiding the crash.
I hope that helps!
