Restore 'Open with Preview' while viewing PDFs in Safari
Authored by: cellmaker on Jun 11, '12 09:18:57AM

It's also possible you've installed a plug-in that is overriding the webkit pdf viewer. I had this issue when I installed Adobe Acrobat Reader because of some unusual version problem preventing me from viewing certain pdf's in Safari.

At any rate, the Adobe viewer took over within Safari, not only bogging down my browser absurdly but killing the "Open with Preview" option. I disabled the Adobe plugins and things snapped back to life and restored the option to Open with Preview. No weird Command-A stuff needed.
