Firefox is not compatible with all sites,however can you post one of the pdf's links and we can check to see if your FF is the problem.

Have you tried in IE

Ive just tried 3 times to follow the link and it froze my Firefox,had to use Task manager to stop the process.

But works fine in IE7

I have a clean system with a decent spec.

I had no problem using Firefox 2.0. However, I use Foxit Reader rather than Acrobat. Perhaps that made a difference.

D`oh!!...don`t even know about Foxit reader...I`ll do a search on it and see what I come up with....thanks...
