Unhappy web page display problem - 08-13-2009, 01:48 PM

Using IE8, when the webpage I'm viewing wants me to open a pdf, Adobe opens a page that asks me to accept the user agreement. The problem is that I can't scroll down far enough to see the accept and decline buttons. I've tried playing with resolution (set to max) and smallest text size, but the adobe page still comes up in the standard size. I move the page up as high as the cursor will allow and then scroll to the bottom, but still can't see the buttons, ergo not able to open PDF. HELP!

I would uninstall adobe and install foxit reader instead. Google it. It's a light weight pdf reader and uses a lot less resources. I installed it on my mini 9 so it must be alright with the low resolution.


Please do not send me support requests via PM.

+1 for Foxit Reader. Not only is it light weight, but with all of the security issues Adobe's been having lately, I feel a little safer using it.
