And it always has. Now there is something you can do about it. Install this new .pdf reader and set it as default when it asks you near the end of the install. Use the strings below to make it active in your browsers preferences. All of you should be using Opera, but I will include the other two just because that's how I roll. Foxit is so much faster and smoother than Adobe. It also starts instantly with none of that legendary "Adobe lag".

Opera: Tools, Preferences, Advanced, Downloads. Then double click on application/pdf line and check the "open with default application" box.

Firefox: Go to the "Tools -> Options" menu
Select the "Downloads" tab
Open "View and Edit Actions..."
Enter "pdf" in the "Search" box
Select "Change Action..."
Change the selection from "Use this Plugin" to "Open them with the default application".

Internet Exploder (just.... why): Right click a pdf file, and select Open with > Choose Program... , choose FoxIt, and then tick off "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file".
