Firefox’s Borg-Like Built-In PDF Reader: “Resistance Is Futile!”

Written by Gary North on September 30, 2013

Adobe is now blocked. Instead, you will find that you can no longer download PDF books or long documents.

I have created a screencast to show just how bad it is.

You can disable this bug. Click the link.

  1. Instead of Adobe, has anyone tried using Foxit Reader with Firefox 24? It’s faster/lighter/quicker/more agile anyway.

  2. Don't know why you're having problems Gary I can download them without any problem.

  3. I don't know why either, the download PDF button is on the top right. Brown box with a down arrow. I see it in your screencast.

  4. Yeah, I use Foxit. Gorgeous interface. Clean and exquisite. Not chunky fat looking like Nitro or Adobe.

    I think his complaint is the speed. I have noticed that same thing. I do not have a high speed computer (compared to his) nor do I have a high speed DSL connection. I have noticed a difference, but didn't realize why. Thank you Gary, for the link. It made a difference.
