    PDFs don't open in Safari
    Whenever I click on a link that leads to a PDF, the pdf never opens. All that appears is a grey background. The PDFs are able to be viewed in Firefox, but why not in Safari?

    bump. I've also realized that Safari runs a lot slower. So much so, that when I close a tab or click a link, there is a one second delay
