    Is it just me or does Safari seem to really struggle with PDFs? Sometimes it just sits on the Spinny loading icon and others it asks me to find a suitable application for opening the document. When I try to click Preview in the window it won't even let me. I've resorted to downloading the files and just opening them in Preview myself, but it's a bit of a nuisance.

    PDF's work great in Safari on my mac. I love the PDF viewer integrated into Safari itself. Works a lot better than windows.

    I don't have a problem with pdfs. Maybe you need to reinstall the pdf plugin for safari so that they load properly within safari.

    Do you have PDF assigned as a QuickTime MIME type?
