I got it, and thanks to Alberto.

Yes, had similar problems. Direct click in Firefox started to open it as
an Adobe document. I have had problems before with large docs opened in
Firefox via Adobe (it can't all be perfect yet) so I killed it.

I then tried to go up one level so that I could point to the link and
say "save link as". Unfortunately this site wouldn't allow access to the
parent level. If possible, future posters could help the situation if
acess was allowed to both the file and its home directory.

So I took the link of the pdf file and plugged it into a download
program that I snagged years back. It downloaded fine. It has also saved
me before when several attempts to download a big file by web page
methods failed. It downloaded fine but also would have had the option to
restart if things had gone bad somewhere in the middle of the download.

It's called MetaProducts Download Express...

Just offering this tip on what worked for me this time. Hope it helps.
