Hi,'
I uninstalled this from my computer a few months ago and now am wondering if I need it and updated adobe reader for PDF files and other applications. Is it safe to have these and where should they be downloaded from ?
Thank you,
salbwil

Just adobe reader is all most need. Actually you save lots of bytes and updating if you simply use Firefox for viewing pdf files.

Chrome browser also has a pdf viewer. I also downloaded and use Foxit Reader instead of Adobe Reader. Much lighter program, and none of the problems that Adobe has had. Foxit Reader is not related of Firefox browser.

Have had no problems reading files , just sending, but comforting to know Firefox will let me view PDF.

Surprise. I didn't know pdf's could be viewed and printed using just FF. Thanks for the info Mikie. I subscribe to an online publication that updates weekly in pdf. I disabled PDF Viewer and gave it a test. Had no problem reading and printing info using just the FF viewer.

As I'm sure others have found, it's worthwhile to read the threads even if they don't seem relevant to our situation. There's always something to be learned that we didn't even think to ask about.
