For best PDF form experience - utilize Adobe Reader or Google Chrome. Both of these programs allow calculations to work within the PDF form.

FireFox web browsers open PDFs with its own PDF preview program. Form fields are not selectable. To have the PDF perform calculations – Control click (Mac) or right click (Windows) on the PDF to save locally and open with Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.

MacOS Safari web browsers open PDFs with its own PDF preview program. This do not handle form calculations. To have the PDF perform calculations – Move your cursor to the bottom of the PDF form to reveal a Save icon. Open the saved PDF with Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.

MacOS Apple's Preview PDF program will open the PDF in a web browser or if you save it to your computer. It is nice for viewing PDFs and other fancy things, but for form fields and for saving and sending to non-Mac users in particular - the Apple Preview program does not save the text like one would expect - the calculation fields do not work either. To send a filled-in Preview form to a Windows user, you can select Print Menu; then select PDF from the bottom left of the print dialog box drop-down menu; Save as PDF - to save the text entered.
