Coming back to our Foxit PDF reader…

It’s perfect, but as all software, it has bugs in it.

In particular (not always) when you open a PDF file, a crash occurs, apparently without any reasons. There are many brillant websites like SODAPDF that can be used for smooth pdf related work.

Today I’m showing you why and how to fix it definitely!

As I have analyzed, it is caused by ads showing into the main screen, in fact to fix it you have just to disable some stuff.

Follow these steps.

  • Open Foxit PDF Reader
  • Click on file
  • Preferences
  • General
  • Uncheck both “show start page” and “show advertisement”
  • Enjoy

Easy, isn’t it? Your favourite PDF reader will work as it’s meant to do.

As I know, it will be officially fixed in some future release of it, but if you use this tutorial you’ll block its ads too!

If you want a clearer explaination, watch this video tutorial that I made for you:
