I started having this problem a few weeks ago: Adobe Reader 9.2 for Mac - with my MacBook (May 2006 - intel core duo) running Leopard 10.5.8 when I have 1 or more Adobe Reader "pdf" documents open and I wish to close one by either cmd-w or by clicking on the red close button top left; most if not all of the time the document goes black and the spinning ball of death appears and then either the program shuts down or I have to do a force quit or just quit.
This never happened before-- I could always have from 1 to 20 pdf files open and just cmd-w the one or ones that I wanted to close and no problem they closed and the program was fine.
Is this something new or ??? A bug or ???
Thanks for any comments. I did REINSTALL Adobe 9.2 but same problem. I've done restarts and more. This is the first time I've used this forum so not sure how I will get notified - do I have to recheck here or will I get a notice to my eMail address??
Thanks and regards,

If you subscribed you will get a new email for every post here. Otherwise you have to manually check. What you are seeing is not typical. I'd try the typical troubleshooting techniques.
1) Fixing Permissions.
2) Emptying various system caches.
I'd recommend you get a copy of Applejack. It can do all that and find disk directory issues. Cost is reasonable---free.
