I have a pdf that contains hyperlinks to other website. This pdf itself is available as a link on a website. When this pdf is loaded in IE window, and user clicks on any of the links inside this PDF, the link opens in the same window. I want all the links to open in a new window.I have tried different softwares to publish the pdf (MS Word, Open Office, Bull PDF, online services), but the links inside the pdf always open in the same window

In the above code, replace www.mycompany.com with your URL. Replace pdfDocument.pdf with the name of the PDF you want to open. The "true" statement triggers opening the PDF in a new browser window. ;-)
I don not want to open another pdf from inside pdf. All I want is to open the web links inside pdf in new browser window. At the moment all links inside pdf open in the same window.

I have this setup in place to open a new PDF from within an existing PDF and it works perfectly...except when you try to view from Firefox (v19). In Firefox it says an error occurred on opening the first PDF although it does open and then the second link does not do anything. Any suggestions?

It worked for me in IE with that solution, but not for firefix nor Chrome. Anyone managed to make it work for these browser?

Acrobat has this option built into it. Go to Edit>Preferences>Internet. In the Web Browser Option section, deselect Display PDF in browser.
Making this change will result in a security alert for links opening outside the PDF, but you’ll get this warning only once for each external site. You’ll need to click the box Remember this action for this site for all PDF documents, then click “Allow” to OK the security of the external site.
