acroread has some kind of stupid feature where it will pop up a small image of the current page. The problem is that there is some kind of bug where this will stick and stay in front of every focused window. Is there a way to prevent acroread from popping up these annoying images as they serve no purpose?

What is a good PDF reader to use these days?

Yeah. I open it only for printing files. Printing from other linux based readers is a royal pain.

Kind of. I use it only when okular fails (which it does on some forms). Also I noticed that this sticking window in my case appears mostly (if not exclusively) when
several tabs are open, so I try not to do that.
