    Changing compatibility settings by adding a site to my list did not solve this issue for me, using IE11.

    I was having the same issue with IE11. I played with it a little and changed the compatibility view settings. That worked for me on IE11. Here is the link to change those settings on IE9. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2536204


    Good luck

    The answer to your 1st question;
    "Yes it does happen with every on-line PDF file I try to open".

    To answer your 2nd question;
    If I recall correctly,"there was no error", but I'll have to reproduce the issue to be sure.

    In reply to your 3rd question;
    "No,I don't mind making a screen-shot of it(the error) so you can have a closer look".

    In reply to your 4th question;
    (I don't know how to disable Safe Mode in Internet Explorer)but I look it up & do it.

    The 5th question;
    As for (Adding the PDF's Site/Page to IE9's list of Trusted Sites as a workaround) I'll try that & let you know how it works.
    Once again I thank you for your prompt reply & I'll get these steps completed & get back to you ASAP.

    Does it happen to very online PDF file you try to open?What is the error message indicated when you try to open it?
    Would you mind making a screenshot of it so we could have a closer look?
    BTW, please try to disable Safe Mode in Internet Explorer or add the Site to Trusted Sites as a workaround.
    Meanwhile, i will pass this issue to our Q&A team for further analysis.

    I uninstalled Foxit via Win7's "Add & Remove Programs" then I rebooted & deleted Foxits "Pluggins Folder".
    I opted to run Ccleaner to remove any orphaned registry entries from Foxits previous install.
    I rebooted & selected "Run As Administrator" from the Foxit installation packages "Rite-Click Sub-Menu".
    I added three SS's to illustrate that all options were correctly selected during my "Clean Re-install" of Foxit (5.4.3.0920) with Admin Priv.

    I even tried Adobe's remedy for the same issue once seen in "Acrobat Reader" which instucted users to:

    "Close IE9 & Foxit,then Re-Launch Foxit update any patchs & attempt to view the PDF Webpage from within IE9(with Foxit already running)". Of course that didn't help either. So any help in discovering why Foxit refuses to open a PDF doc from within IE9,is greatly anticipated/appreciated/

    I'm experiencing this exact issue & I'm hoping for real Resolution.
    I'm on Windows 7, w/IE.9 & Foxit v5.4 installed.
    I've checked my Win7 settings,in (setting both IE9 & Foxit as the default programs).
    I also double checked Foxit's preferences as well.

    However once in IE9's "Manage Add-ons section", I noticed there was "NO Foxit Add-on".
    Although I did notice the file "FoxitReaderBrowserAx.dll" was still in use by IE.9 (even after I uninstalled Foxit,in preparations for a reinstall).

    In short, "I believe the IE.9 Add-on is failling to install successfully" in Foxit v5.4.
    Thanx for any consideration
