When I save a Pages document as a pdf and then try to email the document, it loads as an application octet-stream dat file instead of a pdf and recipients can't open it. Some load correctly, but about half don't load as a pdf. What's happening?

Hi mjmonck-
Which email provider are you using? There are different solutions possible for different providers. Yahoo is having trouble with attachments, outside of any Firefox issue. I've seen a Google user fix this by manually adding the mail URL to their ad block program- which mistakenly perceived the webmail page as an advertisement.
Hope this helps.
