I've refrained from updating Adobe Reader 7 to the latest version for  
fear of going through this again. I think I set the preferences in  
Reader (you may have to do this in both Reader and Acrobat) not to  
use the plugin, quit each program and THEN deleted the plugin. I left  
the framework installed by Reader in Safari although I was really  
angry that Adobe would do that; it seems to do no harm. I'm back to  
using the Shubert PDF plugin in Safari; I only miss scrolling using  
the scroll wheel on my mouse.

I've actually been using the Camino browser more and more. It's  
missing some features and has a few bugs but I like its interface.  
The latest nightlies have been very stable on my system.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
