    Dear All,

    How do I enable the 'Display PDF in Browser' option in Internet Explorer 8?
    I am trying to submit a PDF document online, but get following error message:
    For security reasons your return could not be saved. Please ensure that the
    'Display PDF in Browser' option is selected under the Edit - Preferences -
    Internet settings in Adobe Reader.

    I have tried to find the PDF option under preferences, but cannot find it.

    Many thanks,

    Saar

    You have been looking in Internet Explorer instead of Adobe Reader?

    Hi Saar,

    You misread the instructions

    "settings in Adobe Reader"

    Start Adobe Reader...

    Vista/Win 7 - Start>Search Adobe Reader

    .... you will be offered to Open the Adobe Reader Application (not the Adobe
    Reader Plugin/Addon for IE)

    From the Adobe Reader, follow the instructions.
    Please ensure that the
    > 'Display PDF in Browser' option is selected under the Edit - Preferences -
    > Internet settings


    But I don't think that is the correct error message they are showing you.

    There is a security zone setting to include the local path name in file
    uploads. This is disabled for Internet Sites by default for security
    reasons.
    If you really trust the site add it to your trusted sites zone first (where
    this security feature is enabled). If they have the incorrect error message
    then adding it to your Trusted sites zone should make the error message go
    away and you will be able to upload your PDF.

    Regards.
