    Menu bar is hidden by default - Reader X


      After downloading the newest update for Adobe Reader X (, opening a pdf from a browser in normal mode (not "Read Mode") forces us to press F8 to unhide the menu bar by default. We are using IE8.


      I can't find any setting to stop this behavior. Is this by design? Because it is really annoying.


      We have Display PDF in browser checked, but Display in Read Mode by default is unchecked.

      Under Documents, I have unchecked 'Allow documents to hide the menu bar, toolbars, and windows controls'

      And checked "Restore last view settings when reopening documents"


      Any ideas? We would love to have every pdf opened in a browser with the menu and toolbars open by default.
