Couple of Firefox Questions

For some reason, I cannot view .pdf files in Firefox anymore. Don't know when it happened, so I don't know what may have caused it. Any ideas about how to fix it? Maybe uninstall/reinstall Acrobat Reader?

Bonus question: I've always had hit-or-miss results with Flash in Firefox. Is there a setting/extension/plugin that I need?

Uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Reader, as you mentioned, would be the first thing I would try. I'm not certain but it might be best to make sure that Firefox isn't running when you reinstall Adobe Reader.

As for Flash, have you downloaded and installed the Flash player plugin? Again, it's probably best to have Firefox closed during its installation.

I would agree with uninstalling and reinstalling Acrobat. This would typically fix the problem you've described.
