Open fillable PDF form in Edge and Windows 10

I was so lucky when Adobe Acrobat Reader DC came out. All of a sudden, all browsers would open PDFs with form fields. Before that, only IE would allow it.
Now, Windows 10 and the 'Edge' browser have ruined my day.

Does anyone know of any way to get a web site sending 'fdf' data to open in Acrobat in this 'Edge' browser, or even Chrome or Firefox running in Windows 10?

There are two browsers in Windows 10 both from Microsoft. Did you try the other browser?

I have a "regular" IE Icon on my Windows 10 machine and it works like IE 11.

@machine_run - You are very welcome and I was glad I could help you. Thanks.
Just interested: you say that after upgrading chrome and firefox both lost that ability to fill forms although they continue displaying PDFs?
machine_runAuthor Commented:
Yes, don't know why, don't know how, but Chrome and Firefox are now just showing that an 'fdf' is trying to open and they won't open and populate the PDF like they used to, at least on my PC. These 'fdf's are the data that should open and populate PDFs, but only for poor guys like me, or guys who work for penny wise and dollar foolish companies, who can't get a dedicated server that will allow you to install a program that can 'flatten' a fillable PDF form on the server before giving it to the user, and therefore not being a 'security risk'.
