Mac users: Safari 5.1 and Acrobat not working well together

Mac users take note: the latest Safari 5.1 web browser has some compatibility problems with Adobe Acrobat.  Specifically, you may not be able to view some PDFs properly, and the navigation menu for scrolling and saving files may not appear.   Adobe has a short item about this on their technical support site.


  • Use a different browser such as Chrome or Firefox
  • If the site offers a direct link to the PDF, you can use your mouse to click+hold over the link and then use the “Save As” function to save the PDF to your computer, then open the file with Acrobat/Acrobat Reader outside of your web browser.
