Opening PDF File"Sever Busy"

Using Firefox and Foxit Reader,when I open a PDF file I get the following.
click here.
Could anyone suggest why Foxit Reader does not open straight off. This started a few weeks ago,but can't say when exactly.

Maybe you've started using Windows 7 recently?

In Firefox go to Tools –> Options –> Applications . Then scroll down to PDF Document or Foxit Reader Document (or whatever your PDF files are named). Highlight, and then click on the dropdown menu (right pane), and click on Foxit Reader – Best Reader for Everyday Use. Now, every time you click a PDF link, it will open PDFs in Foxit Reader and ignore the plugin.

Thank you Sea Urchin,would you advise uninstalling the plugin "Foxit Reader Plugin for Mozilla" that is installed?

No, I would leave it in place - it should then work happily like that.
