    irrelevant pop-up when opening pdf document.

      In Reader 8 I have UNCHECKED
      Edit > Preferences > Internet > Display PDF in browser

      To illustrate my question go to http://euler.slu.edu/teaching.html

      Click on the link labelled "pdf format". My browser is IE7. The pdf document opens, in Reader 8 on my PC.

      Now, with the pdf document still open, click on the link "pdf format" again.

      I get a pop-up

      File Download

      Do you want to save this file?

      Name: SuccessinMath.pdf
      Type: Adobe Acrobat Document, 14.7KB
      From: euler.slu.edu

      Save Cancel

      The file you are downloading cannot be opened by the default program. It is either corrupted or it has an incorrect file type. As a security precaution, it is recommended that you cancel the download. How can I decide what software to open?

      This pop-up appears with any pdf document on any website. It is confusing for the students using my website. If the pdf is already open and the link is clicked again, I would prefer nothing to happen. Is there a way to achieve this?

          I produce a 10 page document in Corel Draw. I am using adobe 8.1 and Windows xp. Whenever I save a document to PDF the PDF document opens with a pop up message that "The font 'ABCDEF+ArialMT,Bold' contains bad/Widths." The letters are always different. It happens in all documents. When I click past this pop up everything is correct with the document. What is causing this? How do I get rid of it? I need help figuring this one out. Marilyn
