Look at the plugins (inurl box enter "about:plugins". If nothing shows up you
may want to grab Acrobat, although I don't know why it does not offer to
download it. If Acrobat shows up as the viewer for PDF's in the plugin list,
then it should be on your system (/usr/local/Acrobat ?), in which case try
opening the pdf with it and look for errors.
