Does your browser sometimes display a blank page when viewing .pdf documents?

We found the following links containing suggestions of fixes to the problem of viewing or downloading a .pdf file.

From Microsoft:

When you try to view a Portable Document Format (.pdf) file in Internet Explorer, you may see a blank window or frame instead of the .pdf file. This may occur even though you have installed the Adobe Acrobat Reader program, and you are normally able to view .pdf files in that program.;EN-US;q177321

From Adobe:

PDF opens as gray screen in browser

The workaround we recommend is as follows.

A. Download the PDF file to your hard disk and view it locally:

For Windows: Right-click the link

For Mac OS: Place the cursor over the link and hold down the mouse button then choose "Save Link As" from the pop-up menu. In the "Save As" dialog box, specify a name and location for the .pdf file, then click "Save"

B. Use another browser such as Mozilla, Opera, or Chrome

We regret that incompatibilities between Microsoft and Adobe products has caused you any inconvenience.
