Cannot Open PDF Files In Safari

I just got my ipad and instaled the latest Adobe reader. When in Safari, I click on pdf files and a small wheel in the doc I clicked on spins then nothing else happens. My wife has and ipad 2 and she is able to go to the same websites and open the same files.

Open .plp.pdf Files In Safari?
I just got my IPad 2 and I can't get it to open .plp.pdf links in Safari. It will open links that end in .pdf only but not those ending in .plp.pdf. I've got iBooks and Stanza installed and these don't open the PDF either. It essentially opens a blank document in these apps. The links open fine on my Windows machine and on my MacBook.

Safari Cannot Open Zip Files?
I just got the new iPad. I had some files on my laptop mp3s and mpeg4 which I could listen and watch on iTunes without issue. Decided to transfer them via yousendit cos laptop needs a new charger. When I tried to download safari couldn't open the zips and then would only open other files in QuickTime.

How To Use Safari To Open HTML Files?
In Safari for OS X, I can have Safari open a website whose pages and images are stored on my HD's Sites folder -- first, activate Web Sharing; then choose: File > Open a File... > Sites > index.html.

Is there any way to transfer a website's files to my iPad, and then use iPad's Safari to open it there?

Downloading .doc Files - Open A Link To A .doc File From The Internet And Open It With A Word Processing App
I've been searching for awhile but haven't found an answer yet: is it possible to open a link to a .doc file from the Internet and open it with a word processing app on the iPad?

I believe pages does this, but I was wondering if that's for certain and if any other word processing apps, like quickoffice, do it as well. This is for school use: I want to download a word document and edit it on my iPad, then save it to my dropbox account. I don't want to spend all the money on an app just to experiment to see if it will work the way I need it to.

Word Documents Open But Bigger PDF Files Don't Open?
Just picked up a baseline 16GB WiFi only Ipad 2 days ago, and beginning to upload all my work documents onto it. I use mostly Word and PDF files. I've already downloaded and installed Pages, iBooks, and a free app called iPDF.

The problem I have is that I can get Word docs to open up fine, but it seems like the iPad hiccups a lot on bigger PDF files.

i.e., I have a large PDF file that is about 100 pages long, most of which is in xls spreadsheet format, and blueprints of floorplans (schematics). The pages with the spreadsheet loads just fine. Once it gets to the drawings, it chokes. If I try to zoom in, it chokes. If I rotate the iPad, it chokes again. Is there a work-around to this problem? I want to be able to present the file to my coworkers/boss and examine something without embarrasing myself.

2nd question I have is: is the Spotlight the only method of organizing the work documents? Is there no way of, say, creating a folder on the desktop, like my MBP?

Other than that, I'm really happy with my purchase. I don't have to lug around my MBP anymore, instead just whip out the ipad during the commute!

Can I Have Two Windows Open _ Need To Have Safari Open
I have three questions about the use of the iPad. 1. I would like to use it for editing work I do.Need to have Safari open,copy content from a website,then paste in spreadsheet (Numbers). Is this possible? Can I have two windows open (Safari & Numbers) at the same time? 2. I have a large library in iPhoto on my MacBook.I need to do some photo editing.Sift through a couple of years of photos,delete some, crop some... Is this something I could do both on the iPad and on iPhoto on my MacBook?Perhaps take in some of my library at a time,do the work on the iPad,then export back to my MacBook to store them? 3. I have a Netflix account (5/at a time).Can I stream to the iPad for no extra charge from my "watch now" Netflix stuff.

Virus - Open A New Tab In Safari Or Open A Link On A Page It Goes To The Wanted Page
Interesting thing occurring on my iPad. If I open a new tab in safari or open a link on a page, it goes to the wanted page. But then switches to a graphic saying something about "someone doesn't like you, and you f**ked up" it then goes to a website, either a phone tracking website or something called [URL] This doesn't just happen on one website I visit, it occurs on numerous websites.

So a) is it some sort of virus?

Or b) something else? 

And how do I get rid of it?

Possible To Open Local Files By Browsers
I asked this question before somewhere in the forum but did not remember an answer. I always set my web browsers with a local "bookmark" file as the homepage, so every time I start a browser I can have quick (lazy) access to the sites of interest by clicking, which is much easier than "dragging" the bookmark menu on a laptop.Since Apple "disabled" the file:///, or local:// command in mobile Safari, I am wondering if there is any other browser that can enable these functions so I can have a bookmark file saved somewhere in my iPad or iPhone.

Emailed Files-Mail Cannot Open This
I needed a file urgently as I'm on holiday and failed to copy it across before I left home. So a friend emailed it to me as an attachment. But how can I now use it? I get message that "Mail cannot open this". (Or maybe "iPad cannot open this"). I want to move it so that it can be used by my Memory-Map app.

Some Excel Files Do Not Open In Numbers App?
I have a excel workbook that is very important to my bussiness. I have choosen to switch my inventory system to my iPad and would like to use the numbers app. It states that you can import and edit excel files with this app however I'm not able to get it to work. I've tried drop box and email to try and open file. I've also saved the app in many different formats to try and get it to work. Everytime I try to open the file I get a message stating my iPad doesn't support file type. Then I tried to open a different excelfile from a friend and it worked. Can't figure out why this is happening. I've even started a new workbook put some data in and tried to open it on the iPad, still no go.

'open In' Function Not Working For MKV Files
Does anyone have an issue with using the 'open in' feature to play MKV files in another application? I have 3 applications that support MKV movie files but if I copy a MKV movie to GoodReader or FileBrowser and then use the 'open in' feature, it says there are no registered applications that support this file type. AVI files on the other hand work fine with all 3 applications offering themselves up in the 'open in' feature.
