    When I access a URL that points to a PDF file, the browser takes focus
    and I can't bring some other windows to foreground for a few seconds.
    Is there any way to avoid this? Thanks.

    Unless you Really need it, uninstall Adobe reader, then get yourself a
    copy of Foxit Reader from

    It loads a lot faster.

    I agree. Zapping Adobe for Foxit has transformed my surfing.

    Thank you. I tried the free version Foxit Reader. It indeed loads
    faster and will work for most of my PDF files. But Foxit Reader seems
    to smooth text and can't be switched off (called anti-aliasing in image
    industry?). I switch off this feature in Adobe Acrobat and compare the
    PDF files that need small font (data modeling ER diagrams). Acrobat
    reader displays text more clear.
