How to fix Firefox freezing while opening a PDF file

If you are a Firefox user, you must experienced all firefox windows froze while opening the pdf file. While the pdf file is loading, all of your browser windows are frozen and you can’t do anything else. It is because firefox is loading using pdf plug-in for firefox. Even crashes your entire browser sometime. So while bother using plug-in, if you can open all pdf file using acrobat reader itself. You can browse something else with your firefox while it is loading. Here is the trick:
1. Go to the “Tools -> Options” menu
2. Select the “Downloads” tab
3. Open “View and Edit Actions…”
4. Enter “pdf” in the “Search” box
5. Select “Change Action…”
6. Change the selection from “Use this Plugin” to “Open them with the default application”, which should point to Adobe Acrobat Reader, or your favorite PDF viewer.
7. Click "OK", "Close", and "OK".
That's it.
Now when you open any pdf file from Firefox. It won't freeze your firefox and load the pdf file with Adobe Acrobat Reader, or your favorite PDF viewer instead.
All credit goes to XForms Everywhere

Update: I don't see that problem in Adobe Reader 7.0 and later versions anymore!

Rebtel offers cheap international mobile calling

Introducing Rebtel – the new way to call the world from your mobile phone.

The service is available in 30 countries and it works by people creating a Rebtel account at, where they register their mobile phone number and the mobile phone number of their global friends and family. Rebtel then creates pairs of local numbers and SMSes them in a text message so that friends and family can then save the numbers in their address books.

These numbers can then be used to make cheap international calls. For example, a user in London gets a London number for calling a friend or family member in San Francisco. The person in San Francisco gets a San Francisco number for calling the friend in London.

The international calls are connected using VoIP. However, unlike most VoIP offerings, a computer is not needed. Instead, customers use their mobile phones to connect to the Rebtel network, which then routes the calls between 30 countries around the world.

The service costs $1 a week, but the charge is not applied if the service is not used. The fee gives customers access to two services: REBin and REBout.

The REBout service allows customers to use local numbers to make cheap international calls, paying only for the local call and a small per-minute fee to Rebtel.

However, it is the REBin service that will attract the most attention, mostly because it is totally free, other than the weekly $1 fee. A customer makes a call to his or her international friend. The local call is connected with their international friend's local call in a virtual room called a REBroom. To get to the REBroom, instead of answering their friend's local number, the recipient hangs up, and while the friend hangs on, the user calls the friend's local number and the two calls are automatically connected. They can then speak for as long as they want, without any charges.
Learn more about Rebtel. I'm loving it! Hang up, Hang on, Hang out! \:D/
