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

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
I tried adding Foxit to the helper applications but that did nothing.
Simply setting Foxit as the default file handler in Windows should
be enough to automatically create the Helper Application listing in
SeaMonkey. FWIW, here are HA screens from my properly operating

Those are my settings also.
What version of Windows?
What version of Foxit?
Have you tried uninstalling Foxit and re-installing it?
Vista Home Premium
Foxit Version 3.0 build 1120
Yes, I uninstalled it and downloaded a fresh version and reinstalled
that, but still no joy.
I don't know where it is in vista, but if you were
using XP, I would tell you to close SM, then click on
Start, Control Panel, open the Folder Options icon,
then the File Types tab, browse down the list and
remove all the entries for pdf.
Then look under the SeaMonkey/plugins directory for
nppdf32.dll and delete it.
Now, reinstall foxit, and try again with SM. Did this
