    I use the 'PDF Download' add-on/extension for Firefox to get past this.
    For some reason the plugin from Adobe, when asked to download a file,
    really, really sucks. If you use this plugin it lets Firefox download
    the file and THEN has Reader open it (depending on your settings and
    your selection) and it makes everything much nicer. Otherwise if I
    can't get this plugin (another person's computer) I just download PDFs
    and open them separately.

    Good luck.
