Problems with PDF Answered

I'm having problems downloading PDF's. When I click PDF in the second link, the page opens on a new tab reloading the second link's page effectively looping. Since I have just 'upgraded' to Adobe ver 9.1I had wanted to know if this is a temporary site problem or just me.

Clear your cache and make sure that cookies are enabled. I just downloaded that PDF with no trouble on Chrome for Mac. (But I sometimes get those loops for Pro actions, too.)

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I've finally been able to answer my own question - viz. the problem was a bloody slow connection speed and only after I'd clicked on the download PDF and was unexpectedly called away, that I discovered on my return it had downloaded! I think I need to put a meditation mat in front of my laptop. Maybe call it Zen surfing or something.
