PDF document will not display in browser
  

I am trying to look at a pdf document and it will not display at all in IE6. I tried changing the internet option in Reader 9 to display PDF in browser and it still will not display. I get no error message. It just doesn't come up at all.

this is not with all PDFs, which is why I can't figure out why certain ones from certain sites will not display.

I was reading about add-ons and how they can affect they way files are displayed. Are there specific add-ons I should be looking for?

What else should I look for?

I am running windows xp, IE 6 and Reader 9.

Sure i will help you out with this issue for that you need to follow the below steps:-
  1. Open Adobe reader
  2. Click on Edit -> Preferences.
  3. Click on Internet and check if Select Display PDF in Browser is checked, if not tick
  4. Click on it and Hit OK.
  5. Restart your browser and try again to load the PDF in the browser.

Click the Plug-In tab.

Click MIME settings.

Click the disclosure triangle next to Images - Still image files.

Which menu are you referring to? I can't find anything like that in either IE6 or Reader 9.

I've already done what Thomas321 suggested as I stated in my original post. With the button for display in browser checked or not, either way it doesn't work.

Try disabling the "View In Browser" or "Web Browser Integration" feature in your Adobe Acrobat viewer (for plug-in and standard version). Doing this will force your Acrobat viewer to display PDF outside your browser in a separate window. In most cases this will fix your problem.

Re: PDF document will not display in browser

I have had a similar problem and did the following:
disabled the "Display PDF In Browser" in >> Edit >> Preferences >> Internet.

However, this is all very well for my personal viewing.
But, I have a website whereby other users have the same problem and it seems extreme to ask all users to do the same thing.
Isn't there anything which can be done globally - to affect all other users' display problems?

e.g. to the PDF when first created, or in HTTP headers etc?

I have also noticed that most PDFs open OK on our site, except for the ones which are listed from an Oracle database.

anyone have any suggestions..?
