Have pictures on first page of PDF jump to a page on same PDF after a click

I am using Acrobat 9 Pro.

I have some face pics on the first page  of my PDF.
I added links to each one to go to a specific page on the same PDF. A visual bookmark if you will.

I tried two ways.
1) By using the link tool and adding #Page=2 ( page number)
2) By using the destination tool and creating a "bookmark name"

Trouble is, it works locally but when the link is clicked a new browser opens. I'd like it to just jump to the appropriate page or just stay in the same browser.

AND the other thing is more of an issue.
When I uploaded the PDF to the site as opposed to using it locally on my desktop ( to test if it worked that way) clicking on the links makes it go to a completely blank browser.

Your expertise is greatly appreciated.
