    Firefox and PDF (Firefox 2.0.0.11)

    I finally got fed up enough with the impact of PDF files on FireFox's behaviour to visit rabotat and install the Firefox addon PDF Download

    Works like a charm!

    There may be some occasions in which one wants to view a PDF file in a browser, but I have yet to encounter such. So I have found the most simple solution is to set the Adobe Reader so that it does all the things that PDF Download says it does (Stop PDF files crashing your browser; Stop PDF files taking forever to open; Make PDF files download like other files in Firefox).

    This can be done in Adobe Reader 8 by going to Edit - Preferences - Internet, uncheck 'Display PDF in browser'

    This can be done in Adobe Reader 6, too, it seems.
