The page skip doesn't help at all if one is looking for something in a large 
doc. It seems worse on large docs. An 80 page document with mixed text and 
diagrams takes nearly 2 secs to render once the pre rendered part is passed 
even in black and white. The file size in this instance was 12 Mbytes and 
probably a few years old and created from a scan. Odobe has no problems with 
it at all though.

My netscape plug in is From what I recall that's the same as 
it has always been but it now calls up kpdf rather than the adobe plug in. 
Which did save files correctly by the way. How do I get back to the adobe 
plug in?
Interestingly opera seems to work perfectly using the adobe plug in. It saves 
correctly too. I'm not advertising it but it seems to be the most reliable 
linux browser available at the moment. The only thing I don't like is the 
history. I like it dated. It jumps about as it's used too - just like konq. I 
set my history to 200 days at least. Opera at least highlights the next entry 
before it jumps about though. That helps a lot.
