Hello !

In my Mission Control, I can see an item "AdobePDFViewerNPAPI (internet module Safari)". I would like that this item does not appear in Misison Control because when I click on it, Safari opens up... (and this AdobePDFViewerNPAPI is a doubloon of Safari). I made some googling but I did not found a solution :
  • I opened my Acrobat Pro X 10.1.3, went to "Preferences" > Internet but the checkbox "show in browser..." is disabled and I cannot uncheck this checkbox.
  • In Safari, I went to Preferences > Extensions but I only have AdBlock in the list : nothing about AdobePDF...
  • With the finder, I looked into ~/library > Internet Plugins but I have only one file : picasa.plugin... Nothing about pdf...


I did not found any other solution about this... Could you help me ?

Sur le web, je n'ai rien trouvé d'autre et je suis donc à court de ressources. Est-ce que vous auriez une idée du comment je pourrais faire pour supprimer ce AdobePDFViewerNPAPI du Mission Control ??

Je vous remercie d'avance ! :-)

ps. I'm using Lion 10.7.4 with Safari 5.1.7. No update available.

Try going to /Library/Internet Plugins and deleting the Adobe PDF plugin packages.

Hmmm... I said in my previous message that I don't have anything else than "picasa.plugin" in this directory... No other file...

No, you said you checked ~/Library/Internet Plugins - the user-level Internet Plugins folder. Very few plugins actually get installed here. Adobe Reader installs its plugin in /Library/Internet Plugins - the "all users" plugin directory.
