    I have a few websites that only post my "files" if they see Adobe reader before they will send/open the downloads. I end up having to download these medical files to my Android and then transfer them to my Buster using a usb cable. Its easy but gets old fast! I can easily open the pdf's on Buster using any number of programs, but as you all likely know Adobe no longer likes Linux. I don't really want to run "way old" adobe versions just for this purpose.

    Is there a way for me to re-direct this somehow so that I can view these files in my browser? Currently using latest Quantum, but I also have the latest Chrome and it behaves exactly the same. I simply want to be done with Adobe but some websites are stuck in time. Adobe will be going away in the next year and these sites will have no choice but to update, but they will procrastinate as long as possible. Ideas?
