On welcome.html, user clicks the Search link. The search.pdf file opens. On search.pdf, user clicks the Search button. This button activates the
Adobe Search query process.
In the Search pop-up, user enters search terms and clicks search. The search results are displayed. The user selects the first result in the
list and clicks View.
Nothing happens - Adobe does not display the file.
If step 1 is bypassed, i.e. the user goes straight to search.pdf and
completes steps 2-4, Adobe does display the file.

If I understand correctly, it works if you open search.pdf directly, but not if you open search.pdf from a link in welcome.html.

That suggests a difference between Adobe Reader and the Adobe Acrobat PDFViewer plug-in for your HTML browser.

It wouldn't be the only difference, either: for example, Ctrl+F frequently frustrates people reading PDF files in a browser window.
