    Cannot download nor print PDFs from emails or websites.
    Foxfire has seemed to have taken over my computer. Even PDFs from loaded on flash drives will not open.
    The extension on the file is "Foxfire HTML Document".
    This all worked fine up until three weeks ago, before that it all worked. All with Foxfire as default browser.
    Windows 7 with latest Adobe Reader update.
    Anyone else have this problem with solution?
    Thanks,
    Cliff,
    Katy, Texas

    I don't know of any legit "Foxfire" software. I know somebody who searched for "Foxfire" and from one of the hits downloaded Mozilla's Firefox browser but also got a lot of malware for free. She somehow managed to recover from that herself, but if that's what you did you may want to seek help in our Virus and Other Malware Removal forum.

    I believe cbrock11 means Firefox. Common misspelling. :)

    Try the following:

    Open Adobe Reader.

    Click Edit > Preferences > General > Select Default PDF Handler > choose the PDF handler.

    If no luck,

    Right-click a PDF file.

    Select Open With > Choose program...

    Choose Adobe Reader.

    Tick the "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" box.

    Click OK.
