-
Firefox and Chrome browsers have been freezing or not displaying some PDF files. We have identified three workarounds to address this issue.  
+
404 errors are caused by links to pages that do not exist, have been moved, renamed, or the user does not have permission to view (usually students). You may have:
-
#Right click the file or link and select save link as option and save the file to your computer before viewing
+
* linked to a file in a "hidden" folder in Resources
-
#Use a different browser such as Internet Explorer or Safari as we have not seen the PDF issue with these browsers
+
* linked to a file in Resources in a different course or "My Workspace" 
-
#If you are using Firefox or Chrome you can install a PDF plugin for your browser to prevent this issue from occurring
+
* changed permissions in Resources so that students are not allowed to "read" Resources.  
-
#Configure your browser to prompt for file download instead of opening documents in the browser
+
** It is highly recommended that you do not change Permissions in any tool without consulting e-Learning Staff.

403 errors are caused by links to pages that do not exist, have been moved, renamed, or links to pages that the user trying to view the file does not have permission to view in most cases students.

#You have copied content from another course and all HTML links point to the old course resources and not the new course resources. ##Re-link all HTML links so that they point to the new course resource files and not the old course resource files

##If the files are html pages in resources then using relative links instead of absolute links is an option

##Relative example: gator.gif
