In a Citrix Environment IE7 cannot open a PDF from web browser.  You can download the file and it will open fine.  But if you double click on the file it will not open, it tries to open another brower tab but that's it.

Chances are that the file association is screwed up.  You can try and repair it but the quickest solution would be to remove and re-install Adobe Reader.

Actual I have adobe 8 pro installed on the citix server.  Okay Here is a little bit more information.  I tested opening another website that has pdf  on the site and that opened fine.  So far it's just a couple of sites that we are having this issue.  They are both secure websites that we have to login to.  We are able to log in, then the document is displayed and if you click on it, it will not open.   It appears to be the secure websites that is causing  the issue.

I am not sure, so far I have two that I see this happening on.  
you dont need a re-install applications to change file associations. You can change default programs from control panel. You may need to run an update for adobe pro. Also as a workaround disable the "open in browser" option in adobe and once the link is selected from a website the pdf will open directly in the app vs the internet browser.

If I look in control panel PDF's are supposed to open with Adobe pro.    If I disable the Open in Browser.  Is this located in Adobe?  Thanks
Yes it is.  But it works for HTTP websites and not HTTPS, then it's unlikely to be that problem.

Have you had the chance to try opening some documents from other HTTPS sites as that will help narrow down where the problem is.
