User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; nl; rv:1.8.1.7) Gecko/20070914 Firefox/2.0.0.7

When a website contains information in PDF format and this information is downloaded, Acrobat Reader is automatically opened and the information will be displayed. However return from the Reader is impossible. The problem can be avoided in two ways:
1 Opening a second Acrobat Reader manually
2 Opening Acrobat Reader manually before downloading the file in question.
If these options are not caried out, the only escape possibility is by CTRL, ALT, DELETE
I am using Acrobat Reader version 6.0.0.2003051900 and Windows 98 SE is fully updated

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Opening of FireFox
2.Visit a website containing PDF information for example http://www.hydro.nl/pgs/nl/baz_main_nl_pdf.htm
3.download information by clicking on a week number
Actual Results:  
Acrobat Reader will be opened and the information displayed, however retrun from the reader is impossible

Expected Results:  
No hanging
