    I've tried it on several different websites. The download bar appears in the browser but nothing ever happens. Anyone having similar results?

    One of the first things I did after updating to v1.2.0 is go to Internal Revenue Service and download and view a couple of PDF file (top left of their home page).

    No problem at all.

    At least on my Pre when I open an PDF via the web it will auto save it. Just goto the PDF View app on phone and you will see it there also another way to ensure you save it is when the PDF opens, on the top left corner where it says PDF View, tap on that and then select save as.

    Hope this helps

    Might be related, might be hijacking the thread: I have never been able to read docs or pdfs stored on Google Docs. Spreadsheets work fine.

    Whenever I download a landscape view doc from an email, I can never view the entire document. Even if I change it to wide view, the right side always gets cut off!

    For now the only way I know is to connect Pre via USB, then select Data Storage. Next on your PC/Mac you can delete the files

    Word Docs work in Google Docs yet I have been having trouble with the PDF...Think it has something to do with the files name when the browser tries to open it [its a long list of numbers and characters.]

    The only way I can make it work is to download it to my computer, change it to portrait, tweak it a bit, and then email it back to myself to get it on my phone. And then I still need to change it to wide view to see the whole thing. Very annoying!

    I am able to download PDFs but I am not able to open them. The screen gets stuck with that loading circle thing. Anyone else have this problem? I can't confirm if it worked before the update though.

    I'm trying to figure that one out cause before with the DL tweak i could download mp3 and now it just streams them, doesn't give me an option? hope the tweak comes back or something...

    I did download a PDF.
    The download time was couple of seconds , but it took forever to open the PDF.
    Lag, buggy plain slow.
