moderated Re: Avoiding that "open parent document" button in Adobe.

Thanks very much for the tip! I just checked using Chrome, and it works just like you describe. So Chrome is the clear solution. I would still like to get IE configured to give me a solution like Chrome uses. Does anyone know how I can do that?

I am using firefox or chrome and do not get this at all, it gives me
the option to save the file or open it in my current default reader.
My only problem is that sometimes when I open the document, I don't
get anything, but it usually works.
