"Works Fine Sometimes"
Unlike Adobe's product, Foxit doesn't try to take over your system. The download is much smaller, the program runs faster, and I prefer the Foxit interface to Adobe's.
Foxit seems to have a lot of trouble printing.
I've had Foxit installed for a long time, but for the last several years (since 3.x) it has been refusing to print anything unless I've just rebooted. It's really annoying. At the moment, I really need to print some PDF's, but Foxit won't do it. I just rebooted, but this time, that didn't even work. I run Vista x64 and a Canon inkjet printer, btw. I've done everything anyone has suggested on Foxit's support forums. There are many other people with printing problems, and a variety of solutions that don't work. I've re-installed the printer driver, uninstalled and reinstalled Foxit, even re-formatted my whole system and nothing works. No matter what, Foxit is a huge hassle to work with. I can print from any other program at any time, by the way, and everything else works on my system. I have super-standard hardware, but Foxit will not work reliably, no matter what I try.
Now I have to go download Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is a terrible, awful, no good leach, but I have no choice because Foxit won't print.
