How to Find the Missing Plug-ins for Adobe Reader

Adobe Reader offers a browser plug-in to let you view PDF files in Firefox, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. Although useful, it contains an error that makes it occasionally disappear from browsers -- Firefox in particular -- when you try to enable it. To display the missing plug-in, you have to reset it in the Adobe Reader preferences.
