    PDF's not displaying in the browser

    One of our teachers is having problems viewing pdf's online.

    He is on Windows 7.

    All he gets is an 'oval' shape (Do you know if you print a pdf incorrectly and you just get a circle on a piece of paper? that circle)

    Any clues? He has a pdf view installed etc.

    We faced similar situation in the past. Must uninstall all instances of pdf reader and reinstall the latest version of adobe reader. That solved our problem.

    I assume you have the setting "Display PDF in browser" selected within Adobe? I believe it's under Edit\Preferences\Internet

    Use Chrome, it has a built in pdf viewer.

    We use Chrome here. The administrative templates for Chrome still aren't up to scratch as far as I'm concerned. It's a shame, because I would love to set Chrome as my default browser with 100% confidence

    No problems with it here. Been site wide for a couple of years now.

    Agreed, it would never pass our security team

    Why? Are you relying too much on client security rather than network security?

    We rely on both....using Chrome comes back as a PCI failure

    Run the accessibility wizard in Adobe we found that works before.
