Problems Saving ScienceDirect (Elsevier) PDFs
There is a known compatibility issue with Elsevier’s ScienceDirect and Adobe Reader X that prohibits easily saving PDF files. The workaround is to right-click on the PDF link and select the Save As option:
Internet Explorer – Save Target As
Firefox – Save Link As
If you use Chrome as your browser, this problem does not occur. That's because Chrome (Google) has a built-in PDF viewer enabled by default (http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1060734). It does not use the Adobe reader unless you tell it to when the PDF is opening. Once the PDF is opened in Chrome's PDF viewer, you can click on the Save icon and everything works properly
More information can be found on Elsevier's website.
