    Help with Adobe Reader opening in browsers

    I am trying to sign some forms for my new employer, and they require Adobe Reader to be opened within the browser. They provided me with a nice little link to AdbeRdr1011_en_US.dmg, which I downloaded. I installed the package, restarted my computer just to be safe, and tried to go to the website again. I've tried on Safari, Firefox, AND Chrome to no still says I need to download Reader! I'm not sure how to proceed, as I do not have a PC around and I really need to get these forms signed ASAP.

    I am running Adobe Reader 10.1.1 on OS 10.6.8 with the latest Chrome, Firefox, and Safari updates.

    Thanks for any help!

    You need the Adobe Plug in for Safari or the other browsers you mentioned. Here's the download link for Safari. Install it and try again.

    You can get to the Mac extensions page from within Safari by going to the Safari menu and choosing Safari Extensions. Unless I missed it I did not see anything that appeared relevant and it looks like that page does not have a search function.

    I was having the same problem so I did a quick google. I didn't find a relevant extension but I did find PDF Browser Plugin for Mac.After limited testing it appears to work fine on my Lion system. The first tim you use it a nag screen appears but it is free when used non commercially.
    Did you know these forums are soon to be shut down?
    Long story here. Short storyhere

    The Adobe Reader plugin only works with Safari and you have to enable it in the Reader preferences. I don't have it installed but look for something in the preferences that has to do with "internet."
