A PDF document can contain links to websites within its text. Clicking on one of these links launches the referenced website in your Web browser. To protect your system from potentially malicious websites, the default settings for Foxit PDF Reader do not allow you to click on links and open them. If you trust the links contained within a PDF document, allow Foxit to open links by changing a setting in the program's "Trust Manager" section.
