"It's the only game in town!"

October 02, 2014  |  By hawaiianman79

 |  Version: Foxit Reader


Much faster scrolling than Adobe Reader and simpler!


Versions 6 and 7 crash when history recent documents is set to "0". The ribbon takes up too much room on low height wide screen monitors, I use the classic toolbar mode.


Where else is there to go, all the other free pdf readers are lacking for one reason or another, stick with Foxit.

"Serious issues with latest version ("

September 30, 2014  |  By PoxyPig

 |  Version: Foxit Reader


Foxit has been an excellent free PDF viewer over many years.


Later versions have become bloated and attempt to install OpenCandy PUP and Foxit Cloud.
I allowed Foxit to update itself to version After that neither the Mozilla plug-in nor the one for IE8 worked. My attempt to install the latest browser plug-in file was thwarted when Foxit refused to recognise their .fzip format.
I've had to do a system restore to get version 6.2.2 back and working.


What was a fantastic application has been ruined over the years. An alternative PDF viewer is needed to replace Foxit
