Topic: Opening FDF file on Mac OS X
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 98350

I have an FDF sitting on my desktop. (Max OS X) It contains some field data, and a reference to a PDF it should be opened with at a particular URL.

I click on the FDF, Adobe 6.0 starts, then suddenly, Explorer 5.2 starts. The Explorer window sits for a second, then a second Explorer window opens, and appears to download the PDF from the URL.

Then, finally Adobe comes back to the front, displaying the blank PDF, without any form field data from the FDF.

Is this what is supposed to be happening? Why is the Explorer browser opening? Why doesn't any form field data display?
