silly MIME question [solved]


Recommended Posts

Just click on a link, a popup will appear asking you what program to use to open te link. Choose acrobat reader.

I thought so. Instead an empty window pops up with the word "Done" in the status bar, and that's all. I may have done a not very good thing - I have copied preferences file pref.js from one machine to another. Anyway, there should be an option somewhere to set default applications and behavior. Does anybody remember where can this option be found?

In firefox, it's under settings, properties, downloads.

Ah-ha! Firefox (the latest version 1.0.6 from mozilla webcite) could not locate the acrobat reader plugin because that plugin was not installed. The fix is to go to Preferences->Downloads->Plugins and uncheck PDF plugin (or install the plugin as per Adobe instructions, if you like having PDF files open in the browser window).




I take that the problem is Solved and therefore I marked it as one - Artificial Intelligence
