    How do I configure Safari to use Adobe Reader as the default .pdf software?

    right-click (cmd-click) a PDF - "Get Info" - "Open With . . ." change the drop down from Preview to Acrobat Reader.

    Preview is much better than Adobe's reader IMO but to each there own.

    As an aside, if you mean whether a pdf open inline in the browser that depends on the version of Safari you have.

    Prior to 5.1 you could enter the following into a Terminal window:
    defaults write WebKitOmitPDFSupport -bool YES

    Since 5.1 it doesn't seem to work and you'll need something like TinkerTool
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    Yes. I want to use Adobe Reader for online .PDF's while in Safari. I have it setup as my default reader. I am in V5.1
    I prefer the printing tools and the toolbar icons in Adobe vs. Preview.

    I was under the impression that this was set in Adobe Reader. I don't have it installed at the moment but IIRC, you could set this by going to Adobe Reader > Preferences > Internet.

    Looked at Adobe settings. The "Display PDF in browser using: /Applications/Adobe" is checked, but it is in phantom.

    I rebooted and checked a PDF in Safari and it is not using Adobe.
