We’ve heard from several of you about this issue so I thought I would post the fix. Within Chrome when you try to open a .PDF, sometimes it will bark at you needing Adobe Reader. When we hear about it, the site is often Ohio Means Jobs but it probably happens on other sites, too. You can manually adjust Chrome settings to download the .PDF rather than open with Chrome. The .PDF will open directly in Adobe Reader (which is installed on all public computers).
Unfortunately, we can’t change this administratively because doing so creates another problem.
Trying to figure out if your Kindle will lose internet access? We’re guessing you heard about Amazon’s upcoming changes that will stop some older Kindles from accessing the internet entirely, once the change happens in the U.S. this December.
Fortunately not all Kindles will be affected in the same way. It all depends on which model you have, as Amazon’s move to walk away from older 2G and 3G networks (moving to 4G and 5G) is a bigger deal for Kindles that don’t have Wi-Fi access. The slightly newer Kindles will still have Wi-Fi, but lose cellular connections That said, the convenience of downloading a book on the go via cellular is a huge thing to lose.
