We have had problems with versions 8 and 9, with various files.
Sometimes instead of the pdf loading, we get a window with a big question
mark.
If we keep refreshing, we might eventually get the article.

We've had the same problems with various versions of Adobe.  We have
usually been successful at solving the problem in FireFox by changing
the preferences in the browser so that it uses the reader itself instead
of the plug-in to open the document.  This is set in Tools --> Options
--> Applications.  IE is another problem entirely.  ;-)
