NetLibrary

Mac OS X Problems

  • Adobe Reader 7 may work for some browsers. Version 10.2.2 of Mac OS X is required if you use Adobe Reader 7.
  • Adobe Reader 6 cannot support NetLibrary's PDF.
  • Shubert|it PDF Browser Plugin - Mozilla, Firefox, Camino, Opera, Netscape, and Internet Explorer display NetLibrary pdfs best with this plugin. Install it by opening the .dmg file you download, then copy PDF Browser Plugin.plugin to your Library/Internet Plug-Ins folder. This plugin does not seem to work with Safari. Internet Explorer needs additional configuration; see information at the right. If you have problems with Firefox, see additional information at the right.

 

 

  • Internet Explorer - configure the Schubert|it plugin, by clicking on Explorer and Preferences.
    In Receiving Files, click File Helpers. Click Add... Fill out the Edit File Helper window:
    • Description: Adobe PDF files
    • Extension: PDF
    • MIME type: Application/PDF
    • File type: .PDF
    • How to handle: View with Plug-in
    • Plug-in name: PDF Browser Plugin.plugin
  • Firefox - if Firefox is not configured to handle NetLibrary PDFs, you will get a dialog box asking you what to do with the file. If you have already installed the Schubert|it plugin or Adobe Reader 7:
    • Click the Choose button
    • Find either the Library/Internet Plug-Ins folder and choose PDF Browser Plugin.plugin, or navigate to the Applications folder in the hard drive, then navigate into the Adobe folder and select the Adobe application.
    • Click OK.
    • If you are using the Shubert|it plugin it will open in the same browser window in Firefox but if you are using Adobe Reader 7 the document will open in its own window.
