    when I go into my online banking at Wells Fargo... and click on "previous statements"- a bunch of PDF's show up.

    On my PC , when I used FIREFOX, i coud click on these and the pdf's open up.

    but with my mac, when i click on it , nothing happens. It just downloads a "session.cgi". I can't view the pdfs, I can't right click it either or do anything.

    Anyone with a MAC AND wells fargo been able to open Pdf's?

    You need to change the extension from cgi to pdf to see these statements. Why banks use cgi is beyond me, though.

    A cgi file is not a pdf with a changed extension. Changing the extension to pdf will not work.

    What app do I use to open a cgi file? | Firefox Support Forum | Firefox Help
    FF cannot open PDF links on wellsfargo.com

    Have you tried it? Changing the extension works for me and Preview can open the file after doing this.
