The Pennsylvania courts supposedly have a public information site which allows us to view 'docket sheets' and 'case summary' information.

We can't view the PDF's of the docket sheets or case summaries.

I have tried Safari 3.2.1 with Adobe Reader 9.0 plugin (my normal browsing configuration)
Also tried with the plugin disabled to let Safari handle it natively.
Also no luck with the Schubert-it PDF Browser Plugin



This is on 10.4.11 PPC
I don't have access to a Leopard machine, but I'd be interested to know if the latest Safari on 10.5.x can access this public info.

Common Pleas Docket Sheet
For the 'Search Type' choose 'Participant Name'
Enter a common last and first name
Pick any county
You can leave the other fields as they are.

The search results will display below the form.
Mousing over the icon at the left of most search results will display a hovering window with two options to view either the 'docket sheet' or the 'court summary'. These are PDF files, but we can't get them to display...

Worked fine for me with one of the latest webkit builds and 10.5.6. I'll try with safari.

Worked fine with Safari, too.
They open in a new window. Do you have an adblocker?

(That said, I use safari adblock and it worked for me.)

No adblocker.
WIth Adobe Reader plugin I get a new window but it just has a spinning gear in the middle of a blank page.
WIth the native Safari pdf handler I get a new empty window with an error in the status bar.

AKcrab, are you using the adobe plugin or plain Safari for pdfs?

Mac OS X 10.3.9, Safari 1.3.2 and Firefox2, both w/the non-Adobe PDF Browser Plug-in. And I have Ad-Block Plus active in Firefox. Everything works just fine for me. The PDF did take longer to load in Safari, though.

I really miss it

This extension uses PDFKit to render PDFs in Firefox.

Works here: 10.5.6, Safari 3.2.1, no Adobe or other pdf plugins.

I don't think that that plugin has been updated to prevent some of the recent drive-by PDF exploits. I'm not sure that I would be comfortable using it anymore.

I'm still having trouble with the site mentioned in my OP.

I have a relatively clean install of 10.4.11 PPC with Safari 3.2.1.
No Adobe Reader installe, I am using Safari's native PDF display.

When I try to view a dicument (as described in the OP) I get a grey screen with a messgae in Safari's status bar saying "Failed to open page. See Activity window for details."
The Activity window just says "Bad server response"

We have reports in the previous posts that the site is working for folks on 10.3 and 10.5m but I am having no luck here in Tiger!
This is very frustrating.

Thanks for the heads up, that just recently happened with the upgrade to 2.3.

That's actually awesome, after not updating the software for more than one year.
