When I click on the showcase link, my Firefox 3.0.3 _downloads_ de  
PDF, doesn't show it in the browser. I then double click the  
downloaded file, Adobe Reader 8.1.2 starts up and if I click a link,  
it says "There was an error opening this document. This file cannot be  

I deleted the Reader and downloaded/installed Reader 9.0.0 from the  
Adobe website. This time no error message but also no action when I  
click on any link but "quit"

Still, it must be something on my machine, since others don't have  
this problem.
