Yes indeed, its a mess. I always use a reader whis is not part of any browser.

Of course this can have issues for those still on xp as the adobe product which is current cannot run on xp.

now, when I download my local newspaper, which is in pdf format, I just
click on the link to the issue I want, and after okaying a dialog box that
confirms that I want to open the document in DocuScan Pus, a program I use
to read pdf files, voilla! Until the issue with Firefox and pdf files is
resolved, this might be a good work-around.
