    hello guest !!
    let me tell you that,PDf file cant be viewed from any of the browser wheather it be a mozillla,chrome or even your internet explorer.
    it has special application dedicated to it for viewing such type of file known as adobe acrobat reader.
    so you can view your pdf file from adobe reader only and nothing else.

    Hi,

    You can`t view .pdf files under normal condition, it is viewed in Adobe Reader.

    But with the help of Add-on software you can view the files with .pdf extention.

    Open Internet Explorer > “Tools” > “Internet Options” > “Programs” > “Manage Add-ons” > Add-ons > “Adobe PDF Reader” in add-ons for Adobe Systems section.

    Click “Enable” on Adobe PDF Reader.

    Save.

    Thanks.

    Reapir Adobe Reader or Acrobat


    1. Choose Start > Control Panel.

    2. Double-click Add Or Remove Programs.

    3. Select Acrobat and click Change.
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions to repair Acrobat.

    Reinstall Acrobat or Adobe Reader.



    To ensure that the correct plug-in information is added to the Windows registry, reinstall Acrobat or Adobe Reader.

    If you want the browser to open PDF files in a separate Acrobat window, then configure the browser to use Acrobat or Adobe Reader as a helper application. Then, when you select a PDF file in Internet Explorer or AOL, the browser opens the PDF file in an Acrobat window instead of the browser window.

    To configure the browser to use Acrobat or Adobe Reader to open PDF files:


    1. Close your web browser.

    2. Start Acrobat or Adobe Reader.

    3. Choose Edit > Preferences.

    4. Select Internet in the list on the left.

    5. Deselect Display PDF in Browser, and click OK.

    6. Restart Internet Explorer or AOL.
