Acrobat: Remove Acrobat plugin from Firefox

Alright Adobe, I'm sick of your shit. I don't want to put up with the laggy scrolling and occasional crashes which come with viewing PDFs in a browser window.

I don't mind reading PDFs outside of a browser, but can you quit fucking around with my browser preferences? When I disable your plugin, I expect it to stay disabled. I don't want it to be re-enabled the next fucking time I load up Acrobat/Firefox!

Why is it enabled? I've already clicked disable +20 fucking times!

So, clicking on "More" provided me with information on which DLL file it was using to provide me this "service"; nppdf32.dll

Searching my computer gave me:

  • C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins
  • C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Acrobat\Browser

Delete "nppdf32.dll" (and it's DEU/FRA bits) from both places. Hell, you can even just delete off the "Browser" folder in "Acrobat". There's no playing nice with you. I tried being nice and but you won't listen.

An alternative Twig's Tech Tip on how to deal with Adobe.

Firefox did the world a great favour by displaying PDF's natively, and even though it's not perfect I'm still grateful.
