Mac & Firefox issues in EBSCOhost Database

Patrons using a Mac with the Firefox browser to access the EBSCOhost databases may have experienced problems downloading full-text articles in PDF format recently.

EBSCOhost are busy working on a fix to this problem, but there is a work around for users needing immediate access to these articles.

For users running Mac OSX 10.4 or higher, you will need to download a PDF Plug-in, which is freely available from the following web address: http://code.google.com/p/firefox-mac-pdf/

For users running an earlier version of Mac OSX, you will need to use the Safari browser to access EBSCOhost.

Any users who continue to experience difficulty are urged to contact the Library on 1800 808 369.
