How do you start the Adobe Acrobat Reader program in order to view a PDF document on a website?

CM/ECF Category: 

Adobe Acrobat Reader is a plugin that Firefox or Internet Explorer will automatically launch when you try to access a document stored in PDF format. If you do not have the Adobe Reader, your computer will show you a set of applications from which to choose a program that will read the file. None of them will work, which is why you must download the Adobe Reader from Adobe Systems’ website. To download a free copy of Acrobat Reader, click here.
