I am trouble opening a PDF file for a certain website. The file tries to open, but nothing happens and I get "done" on the bottom of the screen.

If I go to a different PC I can open the file form the website. On the first PC I can access my saved PDF files. I have the latest abode software.

Any idea what the problem is

By latest Adobe software, do you mean Adobe Acrobat? A PDF is most typically opened with Acrobat-but Acrobat seems to be updated a lot (I seldom use it :thumbsup: ). You can try checking for any updates to Acrobat to see if that helps.

If the pdf file is not local (ie has to be downloaded first within your browser), your connection speed or bandwidth on that particular PC will affect how long it takes to get to the point where it can open the file, esp. if it's a large file as some pdf documents are if they are rich in graphics.

An alternative is to right-click the link to the document and choose "save as". Leave it to download then open it from the location you saved it to.
