    Hi,

    For some reason Safari won't open PDFs. Not sure if I can download them but PDFs that are supposed to open with a script (for example, can't just open in a new tab) do not open. Nothing happens. It won't even auto download or anything.

    Just tried Chrome and it downloaded just fine off the same web page.

    Any ideas?

    Edit: Can display PDFs just fine if going directly to PDF link, but it definitely doesn't open with script based ones

    No, you need a plugin? In my previous computer, MBP with Safari 4.x it would open PDFs automatically

    I don't recall. I haven't used Safari in a long time, but I know there's a pdf plugin for Safari.

    EDIT: That may just be for Windows. I can't find one for the Mac version.
