View Full Version : link to open PDF asks for download in mac

hello, i have a link to open a PDF document in a new window. this works fine in all PC browsers: you click the link and the PDF just opens up in it's own window... just like i wanted...
in Mac, it asks the user to download the PDF before it opens.
is there a work-around for this???

So, most likely in your windows browsers a plugin to view PDFs directly in the browser window is installed already while it isn’t in Mac OS. The thing is: You can install a PDF plugin for Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7518), for example, but you can never be sure that other people have done or will do so themselves.

that's kind of what i figured, i just wasn't sure if this was strictly a mac thing or not (because all mac users i ask have the same result, but none of the pc users have experienced it..)
