I regularly create PDFs from pages on a membership site. When I upgraded from Acrobat 5.0 to 6.0, I lost this ability. The site redirects to the login page which gets downloaded. I don't know if the site changed its procedure coincident with my upgrade or if there is some option in Acrobat that got changed.

Here is an example url:
though I suspect any membership site that uses cookies for logins would work the same.

The only way I have to get around it right now is to save the pages from the browser to disk and then create the PDF from the downloaded html file. This is unspeakably tedious.

Is there some way Acrobat can capture and present cookies to a web site? Or is there some other workaround?
