ACS Web Editions problem on MACs

Just wanted to let you know that our ACS (American Chemical Society) Web Editions e-journal platform has a bug that prevents PDF articles from opening on Macintosh computers.  According to their tech people, they do not support the Safari browser, but this problem seems to also be happening with Firefox (and does not seem to exist on PCs).  So if you have a Macintosh computer in your office or lab, you won’t be able to open PDF files from ACS on that computer unless you happen to have Internet Explorer loaded on that Mac.  You can either try to access a needed article on a PC or email me (edward.eckel at wmich.edu) with the information about the article you require and I’ll email the PDF for you.
