I noticed this too. Very annoying, but in fairness to Adobe, it's a free product. Easy to moan, but not from a position of having lost money.
I have to disagree there, the product is free but their format is forced on us and also they gain money from the people who create documents using their paid for version. Such a huge company with such a huge customer base should not be making silly gaffs like this.
There are a significant majority of personal home users who have no intention of ever purchasing Acrobat...
The "not fit for purpose" also factors in the fact it still will freeze and not recover if the server you are downloading a document from stops sending you the information. This is obvious fault tolerance that should be built into the program.
I guess they did get their act together starting with v9, before that there was always the cringe moment when you click a link and realise its taken you to a PDF and there is a 50% chance it will crash and you will lose all your open tabs.
You expect micky mouse faults like scroll bar not working from programs developed by individuals, not huge companies like Adobe.
Before anyone makes any reference to MS, they are nowhere near as bad!!!
