To view PDF inside the browser, you generally need an adobe plugin for it. This, however, probably has nothing to do with PHP.

I wonder what on earth this has to do with PHP?

Anyways, if we are to have even the slightest chance of debugging this problem with you, you are going to have to supply us with at least some info.

So far we know that your link is broken, and that you are using Firefox.
Not much I can do with that :)

Ok.

You can actually check if the plugin is missing in Firefox.
Go to Tools -> Addons and select the Plugins tab. Look for "Adobe Acrobat".
It usually installs automatically tho, when you install Acrobat.

But it could of course be something else.

Is the file being generated by PHP?
Might be a header problem.

Glad we could help.

P.S. I've moved this to misc, because it isn't language specific.
