I uninstalled Acrobat and installed Foxit reader. It works fine as a
separate program to view PDF files, but there is a problem if I click
on a pdf file from a Seamonkey window.
It starts to download, but then freezes. A popup will come up with a
'Server Busy' heading. The message says: The application cannot be
completed because [file name] (application/pdf object) Seamonkey program
is not responding.
Then there are two boxes below that can be clicked. One says Switch
[which when clicked does nothing] and the other says Retry. If Retry is
clicked, it goes away for a few seconds then the original popup comes
back. There is a Cancel button also, but that is grayed out. I can't
close the program after that without using the task manager. The task
manager shows Foxit as being loaded, but if I kill that program I'm
still frozen and have to kill Seamonkey also.
I tried adding Foxit to the helper applications but that did nothing.

enough to automatically create the Helper Application listing in
SeaMonkey. FWIW, here are HA screens from my properly operating
If you click the Edit button on that screen you'll get this:
Animal testing is a bad idea - they get nervous and give the wrong answers.
