You know what I really really hate. When websites don't zip the damn PDF files. You click on the link and the browser tries to open a 1 gazillion byte PDF document in a window. If I could find out how to turn off the stupid acrobat extensions and get rid of the most annoying feature in webbrowsers I would gladly do it.

Anyway, thanks for the link :alright:

donkey, it's somewhere in the Acrobat Reader prefs - I really hate it too. On this install I have turned off the ugly "show inside Internet Explorer", but it still auto-downloads and views in acrobat... oh well, I'm sure I'll get it turned off again :)

Donkey,

By right-clicking the mouse,if you download the pdf file with a tool such FlashGet, the browser doesn't run the Acrobat reader. This is my simple method. :)

Donkey, right click on the link and select "Save by different name", or similar.

I dont have English Windows so I can not be totally sure but it is third option down for me.

Thanks guys,

I know how to download with the right-click, my point was that I just want the darn thing gone. I don't always check to see the file type when I click a link and it's a pain in the rear end to have the stupid acrobat junk pop up and try to download the entire file, slowly I might add because there is no leechget and it comes in at around 100K/s. That and there is no way to just cancel the acrobat without shutting down the browser, acrobat takes too long to load, too long to download and I don't like the interface.

Hi f0dder,

If you figure it out, let me know though I am a FireBird user.

100K/s slow? :rolleyes: - one way to cancel when you've clicked a pdf, at least in IE, is to hit the "Back" button. Sometimes works :)

I get around 250-300 K/s with leechget. I recently upgraded to a 4MB/s ADSL line.

This works in W2K at least:

My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->File types->PDF->Advanced->Confirm open after download

Then the behavior is like with .zip.

Should work in any Windows version. If for some odd reason Explorer won't let you edit the filetype, you can always edit the registry.

Bah, even easier than that. I decided to look through the options window in FireBird...
