right-click the link and select "save link as..." then save the file to your My Documents or wherever.

The latest Adobe Reader and Firefox aren't great chums.

I've noticed some PDF links crash firefox. Shame as I much prefer using it to IE.

Yep, the latest version has some stability poblems - it's not just PDFs!

Predictably, Multimap.com doesn't get on with it very well, and a local authority site I was using last night threw it into a screaming fit!

I always do this as well - for any sort of file. PDFs are a nasty unwieldy sort of thing anyway - much like all of Adobe's products.

Firefow updated itself last week so that maybe the course.
My brother does Rugby councils websites and I remember him saying something about firefox and how IE7 was much beter. Maybe time for a roll back to IE for me.
Pete, thanks for the photo, not the best looking nose I've ever seen on a boat but still think it has great potential in a number of markets. If I only I had the wonga

It's all about standards.... web developers need to test against different browsers, but most won't because of the extra work. IE will always be their favorite because they need to test against that one by default, then against Firefox if they are dilligent, and very few will test against other browsers I would expect.

Yeh, I experienced the features of Firefox 3 series for a while. Good job I was wise enough to keep a copy of the 2 series program for re-installation, eh?
