Any specific reason you're still using Acrobat 4? Long time out of date. Foxit will do what you require; click here

Adobe 9 is the latest reader. It's very good too - faster and more stable. Remove all older versions before you install the new one.

Works 100% with FireFox for me.

firefox 3.0 has had some trouble with plugins, such as shockwave and flash but no proplems with adobe acrobat or reader that i no of so its probably that the version is not supported due to age, also there should be a plugin to download it it don't open as firefox for me at lest comes up with a plugin icon if it don't work so all u have to do is click install then try again.

however this comes back to the trouble with plugins as with flash the plugin don't work the way round this is to download it using IE. i know wtf the point with that u should'nt have to us a differnt browser to get a bloody plugin for the brower ur using to work.
