Re: Open a pdf in browser vs in application

I've just installed FoxIt reader on a Vista machine. During install I de-selected the browser plugins and told it do not open pdf's in the browser when it asked me. Yet when I am using Chrome, pdf files still open in the browser. Any ideas?

Thanks

Doesn't Chrome have a built-in pdf plug-in viewer that you have to manually disable to stop in-browser viewing? (in the address bar, enter about:plugins > locate Chrome pdf viewer > click Disable)

OK I'll look into that when I get back on that machine. Thanks
