Click on the picture, Dick. Your browser should present the article as a pdf.

Are you looking on your computer, phone, tablet? It works on all three for me. Are you giving it enough time to download? It's a big document.

Hmmm... Samsung tablet? Which browser do you use - Chrome, Firefox, something else?

It sounds like a configuration problem. Try going here: http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/testpages/pdf.html

You should see "Your PDF viewing software works!" Then, try going here: http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/testpages/test.pdf

You should see the same thing.

Dick, I split this from your "For Sale" posting, so that post wouldn't be cluttered with these technical details.

When you say "Nope" - do you mean, when you went to those links, you did not see "Your PDF viewing software works!" ? You did not see it for either of them?

If so, then there is an issue with your browser on your tablet. I don't know much about Android (the operating system for Samsung), so I can't advise. I think you have to find a 17 year old kid playing Nintendo in his parent's basement to get this fixed. Wait, do they have basements in Palm Beach Gardens?! :?

Here is a longish thread about folks having problems launching Adobe Reader (for PDFs) on a Samsung phone, which is Android-based:

https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/Gal ... /td-p/4962

Somebody who got it to work said this:
I believe the problem was with Google Drive being the default app. I cleared the Drive default: settings to applications, default applications, set as default, to Drive, then I cleared it as default. I was able to click on the pdf and it opened with the adobe reader.

Don't give up, Dick! I'll be giving you a call soon, maybe we can get this working over the phone. In the meantime, I'll play with Mary Kay's Kindle - it's Android-based too.
