What is the difference between opening a pdf straight from a link in IE and going file open in Acrobat Reader, does one use the settings in IE and one use the settings in Acrobat Reader? I have a problem with some files on a company website which take a very long time to download when you click on them to open from IE but when they are saved to disk and then opened they are fine?
Using Acrobat Reader 9.0 with windows XP SP2
PS opening the file from the website works find with Adobe Acrobat 8 but not with 9.....
Not sure about the exact differences but loading pdf files to view in a browser seems to have a high overhead (as in memory required to load and display the file). For that reason I prefer to view all pdf's in the reader. It's just quicker to load and smoother when scrolling to read.
