    How can I get PDFs to open in Adobe Reader by default rather than opening in Preview?

    I only have this problem while using Firefox; when using Safari however, PDFs open in Adobe Reader just fine. :confused:

    Click on any PDF document and get info. Make sure Adobe PDF Pro is set as default.

    And would I do that in Adobe Preferences or Firefox Preferences? I appreciate your help. :)

    in ff3b3:

    firefox--> preferences --> applications. choose PDF, and select "Use with Adobe Reader"

    It's a little different in ff2, I think you go to preferences, and choose file types and then you can change the default to open with adobe reader.

    Do you mean this? I wonder why there's no PDF extension listed. :confused:
