    the software has completely disappointed me either you update it or i am going to uninstall foxit reader and chrome can play a better role as a replacement of the foxit reader. it will be great if you could update it, as i am long time user of the foxit reader so i would like to use this for more time otherwise i have no option other than replacing it.

    We have fixed it in the 5.3.1, sorry for this, but your choice.

    Please take a moment to uninstall the Ask toolbar with the instructions as following. Again ,sorry for this inconvenience and Foxit appreciate your support.
    Along with Chrome, I just noticed that IE (not my default browser) was also modified; both the default search provider and default start page were changed.

    The PDF viewer in Chrome has been working well for me for the last month, so I won't be going back to foxit.

    I'm angry at Foxit too, but I think another approach might be better. If you love Foxit Software, join me in an intervention:

    started a topic Bug Silent install of chrome toolbar on auto update

    Silent install of chrome toolbar on auto update

    Hello,

    Long time user of foxit reader, but after your silent install of the ask.com chrome toolbar on the recent auto-update, I have now uninstalled foxit reader and will no longer use it or recommend to my company or anyone else to use or buy it. Dodgy, lame ass tactic foxit!

    Chrome opens up PDF files from the O/S just fine, takes a few seconds to configure, and although not as featured as foxit, Chrome is already loaded so it is faster anyway.
Working...
