    Firefox & Pdf Files - An improvement

    For some of us .pdf files have been troublesome within Firefox - causing freezing and crashing.

    If this is you - the good news is there's now a fix.

    This first link is the Mozillazine thread: Mozillazine

    This second link goes to Adobe Reader download page: Adobe Reader

    I went the route of electing to replace Acrobat 6.0 with the new version 7.0 (free/basic version) and have found it has cured my freezing and crashing problems.

    Also, JourneyMan, you should look into upgrading firefox from 1.0 to 1.01 (from your sig)... it fixed some crashing/stability bugs... which may/or not have been due to PDF

    My bad Cash_Site. I am running the latest browser - I,d forgotten to update my signature here. Cheers for pointing it out, I've fixed it now.
