To add to Bernds great advice, if you are using Chrome, Edge or a 64bit version of Firefox, they don't use the Reader plug-in but have their own viewers which really hate some forms. Download the file first by right-clicking the link to the file and saving to your computer, then open in Reader.

We have the same problem and we have narrowed it down to forms created in Adobe Lifecycle, which isn't supported anymore. If you open the file and go to File >> Document Properties you should be able to see if this is the case with your file. If so, I would recreate it using Adobe Acrobat Pro.

 

Hope this helps.
