DT(pro) crashes with URLs that link to a pdf

A question about the integrated web browser: each time I enter an URL that links to a pdf document, DT(pro) crashes. Any suggestions?


That’s an easy one. You’ve installed Acrobat or Adobe Reader, which installs a browser plug-in on your computer that – in my opinion – is both poorly written and totally unnecessary (if you are using Tiger).

The Adobe Internet plug-in is incompatible with the WebKit browsers used by DT/DT Pro and DEVONagent. Find it in //Library/Internet Plug-Ins and delete it.

thank you, that took care of the problem! :slight_smile:

To further that, I highly recommend using the brilliant schubert-it http://www.schubert-it.com/ PDF and Word browser plug-ins after you have disabled the Acrobat plug-in. They’re fast and effective, and work inside DT. (NOTE: Acrobat trys to reinstall its plug-in occassionally on updates and theres a preference to ensure its not the default)
