Need Computer Help!

Just like the title says!

Need Computer Help!

Postby Gary Busey for CE » Sun Jan 08, 2012 10:07 pm

Okay, so I'm not exactly a computer-savvy person. (I'm Gary fucking Busey after all...) In fact, I'm so clueless when it comes to computers and how to fix problems with them that I'm shocked DS hasn't hired me as a Tech editor. Maybe my junk folder swallowed their email. Anyway...

I have a PC. Windows 7. Firefox. Yesterday, Firefox updates itself. Whatever. But now, any time I try to open a pdf through Firefox, it shows up for a split second and then I get the silver screen of death with that goddamn frowny face fucker saying Adobe Reader crashed. Reload- same thing. I've cleared the cache, rebooted, tried to update both Firefox and Adobe (both say they're fully up to date) and meanwhile, I'm having a bitch of a time finding sources for articles because I can't open pdf files. I could always use IE for pdf purposes but that's just fucking lame. (Plus, my IE doesn't open it in the window and instead opens a separate Adobe Reader window for the pdf, which is annoying.)

Any suggestions on what to try to fix this is greatly appreciated. Tried Google and thus far, nada. I haven't tried eHow, in case you're wondering. :lol:

I see you tried logging out, clearing the cache, and logging back in, and rebooting the computer. Must be hackers. Probably from DSS.

Gads. Bugs. Adobe has made the PDF reader so sluggish. I'm starting to hate the shit.

It's probably a bug with the update. I'm afraid the best thing to do is try another browser and wait for all the bitching from others that pushes Adobe and/or Mozilla to fix the bug. You could try updating Adobe, too and see if that works.

Try a different PDF reader?

Batman for the win!

:)

Thanks, Foxit Reader solved the issue. (Hadn't heard of it before.) Took me a sec to figure out how to get it to read in-window instead of opening a separate box but it's all good now. I think the issue is a compatibility problem between the updated Firefox browser and the Adobe plugin but again, what the fuck do I know?

Thanks for the suggestions and humor, guys. Always appreciated.

I've been having that problem too, but I thought it was because my computer's getting worn out. I'm not as computer-savvy as Gary Busey. Every time Firefox updates it's less appealing, with new problems, and usually I love Firefox.

Foxit Reader. Got it.
