Foxit Reader spews a lot "not a PDF" on some pages

I noticed Foxit Reader Plugin throws a lot errors on some pages about PDF document, even though there's none. First I saw this problem on amazon.com. There's no errors on main page, but when I choose any item it throws around 5 errors. Today I noticed similar happens in my hotmail account. When I try to view inbox it throws 8 error dialogs, also page doesn't work in general; can't view emails, navigate folders (just nothing happens if I click). Is there a way to fix this?

Hi Ripiz,

There seems to be some issues with the latest version of Foxit Reader. Did you recently update? I'd take a look at the solution in this thread:

It will show you how to roll back to an older version to see if that helps!

Thank you for reply. Well I reinstall Windows not long ago, so I guess that counts as yes. I will try older version, or just get Adobe Reader. Thanks again!
