application/pdf and netscape incompatability problem

heh guys,
I am having a problem with netscape and here what it looks like:

Inside a JSP page, I have a javascript function which invokes a pdf file. Now if I am using IE it works fine but when I do the same thing using netscape it says: this file is of type "application/pdf", and netscape does not know how to handle this type of file. It invokes a blank page behind this message screen. I am trying to get rid of this blank page. I have seen the javascript code and it invokes this blank page as it has,'....)
let me know if somebody can help me with this.
Thanks a lot.

The pdf will not open up directly in Netscape like it does in IE. Plus what version of Netscape are we talking here?

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
