Adobe Reader 9.1.3 Issues with browser viewing and printing

October 11Hits:0

I have several users reporting issues after upgrading to Adobe Reader 9.1.3
Issue #1:  User tries to open a PDF on a bank website using Adobe 9.1.3 but receives an error stating file could not be found.  Adobe 9 was uninstalled and Adobe 6 re-installed.  The file on the bank website was then viewable without issue.
Issue #2:  Different user successfully opens pdf on a different bank website, but is unable to print while viewing in browser using Adobe 9.1.3.  User had to save file to desktop and reopen locally to print from Adobe 9.1.3.   Uninstalling 9.1.3 and re-installing Adobe 6 allowed them to print from the browser successfully.
Issue #3:  turning off "View in Browser" causes the error "File cannot be found" when trying to view a PDF on a website.  This appears to be happening on sites external to our network, but not on internal sites.  Turning on "View in Browser" corrects the problem.
Any assistance that can be provided would be greatly appreciated!

To clarify my previous post, I had already seen http://forums.adobe.com/message/1770581 .  I mentioned in my post that I get the message "Preview not supported" when I click the Preview button from the print dialog in Adobe Reader, and thus concluded that the "Preview" workaround discussed in that thread wasn't helping me.
However, re-reading that post, they were talking about using the Mac "Preview" application to print the pdf file.  Like every other application (other than Reader) I have tried, the Mac's Preview application prints just fine, and is another workaround.
The only program that doesn't print for me is Adobe Reader.
BTW, I also have an Intel chip in my MacBook Pro.
Re-installing Leopard, as suggested by one post in that thread, is not a reasonable option for this problem.
In fact, since Preview allows me to view and print .pdf's , my solution is probably just going to be not to use Adobe Reader.  In fact, had I not been new to the Mac, I would have known that I didn't need Adobe Reader at all.
However, I'm glad this happened, in the sense that I use CS3 on the PC, and had considered moving to CS4 on the Mac.  However, since Adobe apparently hasn't figured out how to get printing to work on a Mac from their flagship product (!), I will be sure to do a lot of testing of CS4 before considering buying the upgrade.
