Topic: Mozilla pdf handling with Acrobat Reader 6 and Mozilla 1.5

I had high hopes that Acrobat Reader 6 with it's link to Netscape/Mozilla now at version 1.5 on my machine running under WinXP Pro with 1 gig RAM, Barton 2500+ processor, nForce2 board, and NVIDIA GeForce4 440MX, 128 MB video board, would finally straighten out, but it has not. PDF's load quickly under Mozilla with my cable modem setup, but they create medium length lockouts as they do. But the worst is when I try to close the tab with the pdf in it. It takes forever, and largely locks my machine while it is closing. If I load the same pdf under IE 6.1, it loads quickly and then goes away just as quickly. Something is wrong here. Can anybody tell me what, and please do not insult me by telling me not to use Mozilla. It is quite excellent for my purposes.

For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
