Is this the only .PDF that does this?


In Adobe :

Edit / Preferences :

Internet option on the left hand side ...

Make sure you have the check mark on the: Display PDF in browser.

check the option again. You may need to run adobe as an admin to ensure the option holds properly. What version of adobe are you using? Do you have more than 1 version on the machine? Check your program files to see if you have other versions.
