    My Embedded PDF Docs are not displaying in IE9. They do seem to work properly in Firefox 4. Here is page where 3 PDF docs should display http://briandmock.com/wordpress/?page_id=6

    I have tried both Embedded and Standard viewer. Any ideas or assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I noticed some time ago you're no longer using the plugin, so I can't give any specific advice. For the benefit of others, I can't reproduce a problem with IE9. If you run into issues, please let me know.

    I stopped using the plugin due to the issue. Am now using a slideshare plugin.

    It's not a problem with the plugin. It is an IE9 issue.

    See below for the IE9 problem. I'd really love to be able to put this out to the public with the odds of increased engagement that your plugin offers.

    I'll probably have to put it on a separate page and send you another URL. We're releasing the report on the page above in about 45 minutes.

    Ya I can't see it. SlideShare works great for me, may want to try that.

    Haven,

    I might have to. I'm not crazy about the branding, but hey....

    If you want to put up the document on another page and send me the link, I'm happy to help you troubleshoot the issue.

    Hey

    I'm also having a problem in IE9, it works on some pages but I recently added 3 pdfs and it just doesn't show up, no errors.

    you can see here: http://www.forcayman.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Screen-shot-2012-02-16-at-3.22.44-PM.png

    As i said i got the plugin to work yesterday but i can't figure out why its not showing on the new posts.

    See it on another page: http://www.forcayman.com/the-projects/wmf/

    The pdfs all seem fine, and it works on all other browsers except IE9

    I am having similar IE9 issues. In "Enhanced Mode" I get what amount to unlinked/broken thumbnails and in standard mode, just a blank area.

    In Google and Chrome it works fine. Standard is the choice of dysfunction for me given it looks cleaner when not working in IE.

    I realize this is little consolation, but I had no problem loading the document on your homepage in IE9/Win7 64-bit:

    For those who are interested, Google's viewer not playing nice with IE has its root in the current spat between them over implementation of P3P, see this among other links regarding this issue:

    Unfortunately it is a viewer issue and not a plugin issue... the Enhanced Viewer works around it in some circumstances but nonetheless inherits many of the limitations of its parent.

    In my experience, GDE is broken for users whose browsers are logged into their Gmail or Google + accounts. If one temporarily signs out of Gmail or Google + all is well.

    While not an optimum solution, perhaps this factoid could be of use in troubleshooting...

    Regards
