i have acrobat 7.0.2 professional installed on my pc, and it really bugs me becasue it always opens links in internet explorer and i cant stand ie/use firefox. is there a way to change that? ive looked around the options trying to figure out how but i've missed it i guess (im really new at acrobat).

Acrobat uses your default web browser. To change your default web browser from IE to Firefox, launch Safari. Go to Safari > Preferences. Select General. Using the Default Web Browser: popup menu, select Firefox.

It's a PC though, right? Change your default browser through the "program access and defaults" or something like that and hopefully it'll always open with Firefox.

hmm...i went into there and set the default to firefox, and even removed access to explorer but it'll still open in explorer. this problem is unique to acrobat.
