Forum Question: Override Safari as a PDF viewer

This may have been asked and answered and, if so, I apologize for the redundancy. Is there a way to set a Safari or Adobe Reader preference so that web-embedded PDFs always open in Adobe Reader instead of Safari?
Thank you. Great site!

    If order for Reader to open a PDF, it has to be on your hard drive. So you’d need to download it first, and then open it. You can Control+Click and select “download linked file as” and then open the file. You can also click on the file and open it in Safari, then Control+click and you get an “Open in Preview” option — perhaps you also get an Open in Reader option if Adobe Reader is your default PDF viewer?
    But I don’t think there is a way to get this to happen automatically.
