    Viewing PDFs in Safari
    I'm having problems with this and none of the solutions I've found on the web seem to work.

    1. It used to work properly
    2. Now when I follow a link to a pdf file I just get a black screen

    I'm a fairly new mac user so sorry if the solution is obvious

    Have you tried resetting Safari? Go to Safari > Reset Safari... (I believe this is the right menu option - not in front of my Mac).

    Have you tried Firefox to see if this is a Safari issue or a system issue?

    What version OSX and Safari are you using?

    Is this only one particular web site or several sites?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
