Opening PDFs in Web Viewer

The system default application for opening .PDF files is set to Foxit Reader. I am using Foxit Reader instead of the Adobe Acrobat DC because the PDFs would randomly show in the Web Viewer with the right side bar open and I cannot see the PDF. I have attached a sample. I have to repeatedly close and re-open FileMaker or restart the computer to get the PDFs to open correctly again.  I have spent consider time researching and attempting to stop the side bar from opening but have been unsuccessful.


I installed the Foxit Reader and it was working great. However, randomly FileMaker has reverted to opening the PDFs using Adobe Acrobat DC. I have attempted restarting the computer, changing the default PDF application back and forth with Foxit and Acrobat, re-creating the web viewer, yet the PDFs are still opening with Acrobat. How is FileMaker stuck on Acrobat?


Thank you!
