You're comparing a document to an image? I don't really see a how one is better than the other.

Yeah, but if I saw it coming, I wouldn't have clicked it in the first place.

Default Solution!

There's a trick to fix this (i did it a long time ago and have yet to do it again, but i'm 100% sure it works!)

I don't remember what plugins are required to be used to run acrobat, so what i usually do is I rename the Acrobat Reader plug-in directory (it's C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\plug_ins here) to plug_ins.old -- then I make another directory called plug_ins and I move _only_ the plugins that I need to use to view PDFs after it complains about xxxx.api missing plugin.

I have an extension that puts a little icon next to the cursor when you have it on a link if the link isn't HTML, or PHP or something like that. Usually I see it's a PDF, then right-click-save.

Default Not recently

Back with Adobe Acrobat 6.0, that was a fairly severe problem. Particularly if it found an update and decided it absolute positively had to download and install it there and then. Then it went from a minor inconvinence to my whole browser being locked-up for a period of minutes.

However, version 7.0 seemed to fix most of that and load up a lot quicker. I'm not sure how it did that, but I was certainly glad to see one piece of software getting faster rather than slower.

I'm now using Linux though, and have no PDF reader integrated with Firefox at all. I've been thinking of finding a way to do it, but downloading PDFs and viewing them with KPDF is enough for the light user that I am.

Foxit rocks. Been using that since it came out and have had no problems and it's a lot faster loading than acrobat. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>
