    FF 2.0.0.11 --

    I notice FF treats a PDF link in an email as a downloadable object and
    then opens it up in Adobe. Is there a way to click on a PDF link and
    simply have it appear/open as a URL in the web browser, as in the way
    MSIE handles it?

    Thanx.

    Look in Adobe Preferences for "Open in browser" option and check it.

    When in doubt assume that, once again, you've outsmarted yourself.
