I recently had a pdf file that Firefox's pdf decoder couldn't read, and 
I had to diable the automatic FF-pdf and make it so the Adobe Reader
plugin works. Adobe can read the file. I don not like Okular: it doesn't 
tell you how many pages the pdf uses.  You could print what you think
is a 20 page package and find out it's 200 pages!
