IE may be slow and not the first , go to, browser but IE remains the only one that consistently works with most sites and in some cases only one used by a company.
I use Chrome but still find that IE works at those times Chrome fails.

It may be the solution, but as far as I am concerned forget about IE, it's slow and clunky and I bet nobody writes Extensions for it, sorry, I should have said add-ons since IE doesn't support extensions.
At this point and in my opinion the best browser to use is Edge followed by Google Chrome or other chromium based browsers.

The solution Ann Byrne provided earlier will get rid of the Open parent document and cause PDF's opened in Internet Explorer to be opened in Adobe Reader. This is the standard solution for IE.

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.
