    Does anybody else have trouble with PDF's opening with the QuickTime plugin in Safari? When I click a PDF, it shows only the first page, too small to read, and doesn't have any controls to zoom in, switch pages, etc.

    How do I get Safari to open PDF's in preview again?

    well if you want a pdf to open in preview or adobe just right click on the file you can either 1) go to open with and select preview or 2) go to the get info menu and there is a tab there "open with" and select what ever you want to open it with, there is an option there to change all the files like that to open with that app. This is how it is in Panther im not quite sure how it is in Jaguar, I hope this helps though

    Oops sorry I was a little ambiguous. I mean when I click on a PDF link in Safari it opens it in the QT plugin instead of saving it to disk.

    PDFs clicked in the finder still work correctly.

    this doesn't directly address your problem, but try this... it's incredibly useful:

    PDF Browser Plugin

    Good plugin but it only works if I disable the QT plugin and that messes up a lot of other stuff. If QT is installed, Safari uses QT...
