1. Try deleting your downloas.rdf from your profile folder
2. Use Adobe reader 8.1

Also please always report only ONE problem per report

Thank you for the response..
 there is NO"downloads.rdf" file to delete
 Already have Adobe reader 8.0. ALSO Firefox. 2.006
 Problem persists.. exactly as described above.
 This EXACT SAME problem occurs on my 'work'computer is 10 kilometers away from this one.
 Suspect this is an Intrinsic Firefox 'bug', either accidental or deliberate by Adobe/Microsoft, as many have told me they also exp[erience this.
How are you downloading these?  Rick-click and save as, or just click the link?

Will try further 
Note: recently added Adobe Pro to my Work Computer and ..Now.. I can read PDF's in Firefox.  Still works Much Better (seamlessly) in IE.. 
Seriously though, now that IE is 'improving' I'm being tempted to switch back... been 'putting up' with this for quite some time.
