User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 I have installed FireFox .8 Mac 0S 10.3. Works great. However, I can't make it lanunch Adobe Acrobat, as opposed to Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing / editing .pdf files. When I go to Preferences, I view in the file types scroll pane PDF files. I select it. It brings up a dialog box that has a radio button for selecting a different applicaton for viewing PDFs. I click on the radio button. It brings up the MAC file select button. I am unable to select Adobe Acrobat for viewing the application. I can navigate to the directory containing Acrobat reader but can't select it. It is gray and unselectable item. Oddly enough .pdf files are selectable. How can I make Acrobat Professional as opposed to Acrobat Reader the launching application for .PDF files? Thanks, Tom [Quote] Guest Posted: May Sat 22nd 2004 8:41am I did a little more digging. This works fine in Mozilla 1.7 RC 2 on the MAC. It also does not work in the May 17 nightly build. Other nightlies appear not to be working at all. [Quote] Guest Posted: May Sat 22nd 2004 8:43am Just to be clear, it does not work on the May 17 Firefox MAC build. By other nightlies, I meant more recent nightly builds. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. See description of bug. 2. Firefox -> Preferences 3. Select Downloads 4. select a file type (in my case PDF). 5. Select the change action button. 6. Try to select another application. Can't they are all grayed out. In my cases I was trying to change from Acrobat Reader to Acrobat Professional. Actual Results: Unable to change helper application for file type. Expected Results: Allow me to select the helper application.
