    Problems with fast web view and really large PDF files.

    ALaidlaw

      If "allow speculative downloads in background" is set then the Fast Web view becomes nonfunctional.  Reader is makeing the HTTP Byte range requests but will ask for almost the entire PDF file in one range (180 MB of the 182 MB file).

       

      If "allow speculative downloads in background" is not set then Fast Web view is working fine, Reader is making more HTTP Byte range requests but the larges ones are still small 20K or so.

       

      Is this behavior being experianced by anyone else?

      What are the disadvantages, if any, of having "allow speculative downloads in background" turned off?

       

      My environment:

      182 MB pdf file (Optimized) around 41,000 pages.  I have also seen this with 42 MB and 25 MB pdf files.

      IE 6

      Reader 9.2

      Apache webservers (On Solaris Apache 1.3.20 and Linux Apache 2.0)

       

      Thanks in advance
