I have a question…I have had Foxit Reader for some time. Whenever I had a PDF file, it would open immediately when prompted. Now, for some reason, it will not open any PDF file unless I save it first. WHY?! This is driving me insane. I don’t want to save every PDF file just to be able to look at it.

Please help!
