Mac OS 10.6.8iMac Intel Core 2 DuoSafari 5.1.7I installed Acrobat XI Pro, and safari no longer can open a pdf link. I was able to get FIrefox to work by removing the Acrobat NPAPI plug-in, but removing the plug-in from my library did not solve the problem with Safari.

Hi, this technique works for me with safari and i am running the exact same OS and specs as you.Go to you applications folder, then SELECT Safari, by clicking just once so that it DOESN'T open, then press cmd + i to open up the info for Safari in Finder.Then deselect 'Open in 32 bit mode" then quit and restart Safari.Hope this helps?
Thanks for the suggestion, but that did not help, because 32-bit mode was already deselected. (i.e., it was already running in 64-bit mode).
Any other suggestions?

OK, thanks for that, do you still have the AdobeNPAPI plugin found in library - Internet Plugins –. Also, in Acrobat Preferences, select the 'Internet' tab on the left, and is 'Display PDF in the browser' ticked.

I was already running 64-bit mode for Safari, but I was able to solve the problem by removing the Acrobat reader NPAPI plug-in, found in the Internet Pug-ins folder in the user library.All works now. :-)I have no idea why an installation of Acrobat XI Pro would install a pug-in that prevents Safari (and Firefox) from desplaying a pdf. Something for Adobe to fix.
Thats excellent, glad its working for you. Displaying PDFs in the browser has become a major headache this year. Your mot the only one, as this question has arose time and time again in the past 9 months, the main culprits as you have experienced are Safari and firefox as the plugin has become incompatible and Firefox disabled it as they said it was a security risk...
Anyway, all the best and glad you sorted
