I found out that its best to have (at least on windows) acrobat open before
clicking on a pdf link in the browser. Also, on slow connections, it seems
that time outs also play a role. Sometimes the in-browser acrobat screen
stays blank, but the goback button brings it up in a flash. I think that
there are some fundamental problems between caching, signalling, refreshing
