Help! Can not get acrobat plugin to work with iceweasel

I am right in the middle of some filings I have to do for the government, and I can not get the acrobat plugin to work.

I have acroread-8 (not 7) installed. I also installed the plugin:

aptitude install acroread-plugins

But, I can not get the plugin to work. When I click "manual install" it just wants to download acrobat again.

Important not to mix the downloaded Adobe Reader with the version. The version has been working fine for me in Iceweasel. Wish I could help further, but just in case you did install direct from Adobe, purge anything you installed from the debian-multimedia site, uninstall the Adobe version, then install the stuff from debian-multimedia. If that is what you've got there, a mixed setup of both.
