Default Can't open pdf's

Lately I have not been able to open pdf files from my gmail on my phone. This just started happening a couple weeks ago. I really need to open them for work.

When I get a pdf in my gmail, I go to either Preview or Download and it says Fetching Attachment. But then I get an error that says... document cannot be opened because it is corrupted or damaged.

I can open these same pdf files on my pc. What could be causing this all of the sudden?

I've had Adobe Reader downloaded for a long time and I keep it updated.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

You might try an other PDF reader like RepliGo Reader, ezPDF Reader or Mantano Reader.
The viewer version of ezPDF and a version of Mantano with ads are free in Market/Play Shop.

Google Translate is to blame for my grammar

My HTC Sensation wouldn't let me view any PDF's, so I downloaded a new browser, Opera Browser, which allows me to download all PDF, or just view them. (I tried Dolphin Browser, but that doesn't work)

Hope that helps
