    What distro and what version of mozilla are you using?

    Do you mean you couldn't even download the PDF, or you couldn't open the PDF file in your browser (or a seperate PDF viewer)?

    I'm not sure why you're in the Linux forum, but you probably just need to install (or re-install) the Adobe acrobat reader. PDF files are Portable Document Format files that are read with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can get it here: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

    As an aside, when did Acrobat Reader go from and already bloated ~6 meg download to almost 16 megs?!?@# What else can they add to it? Yeesh.
