on Foxit of course, what else ?

if you want to search for a word /words in a pdf-file, then there is a small window at the top-bar where you enter the word, my last installed Foxit-reader had "ASK" to the left of that window.

if you donīt see the searchbutton then you perhaps have removed it from the top-bar ?
right-click with your mouse on the bar and select search, and then see what happens...

i have installed Foxit reader 3.3 now.

during the installation there is:
first the ASK-Installchecker that wants to connect to Internet !?

then an infoscreen saying "New features include the following...
the 2nd line is "Improved Ask Search Button Setting"

after accepting the License Terms comes the next screen showing the toolbar,
beneath it is a line saying:
"Foxit Toolbar powered by Ask.com"

then itīs still the same PRECHECKED options:
1. i Accept the License Terms and want to install Foxit Toolbar
2. Make Ask.com my default search
3. Reset my homepage to Foxit Startpage

after clicking next and selecting where to install (if custom install)
then clicking next again and selecting desktop settings (Icon etc.)
the next screen says:"Setup Completed"

the first 2 options is run Foxit Reader & View Readme.txt
the 3rd PRECHECKED option is to:"Create desktop, quick launch and start menu icon to eBay.

after starting Foxit i started looking for the ASK-searchbutton,

if you click on "Tools" then "Preferences", then the 8th setting "Internet search", then the 3rd option is "Hide Ask.com Search Button".

WOW !

it REALLY looks safe...

From the review at Softpedia
Quote:
The Good

The best part about this app is its simplicity, both regarding its ease of use and in terms of resource usage. It doesn’t need a lot to work and yet it gets the job done, and that is enabling users to view technical and scientific documentation with no effort on their part.

The Bad

A larger number of extensions that can be viewed would be an improvement – an all-in-one piece of software that sees not only documentation but also images, sketches or even graphs that can come with such documents. The file association feature is the worst thing about the app, because it tampers with how your system works.

The Truth

All in all, STDU Viewer offers pretty much everything that you would expect from a free piece of software. It offers good quality for the files that are being viewed and doesn’t require a lot of system resources or experience on the user’s part.
I really don't want an all-in-one and particularly do not care for programs that mess with the standard file associations.
