Adobe Acrobat Reader 8.1.1 For Linux
Phoronix: Adobe Acrobat Reader 8.1.1 For Linux
Adobe has released an update for their Acrobat Reader product on Linux and SPARC Solaris. Adobe Reader 8.1.1 for Solaris and Linux features a new user-interface, improved performance, single document interface mode, and an always-available search toolbar. Adobe Reader 8.1.1 for Linux also features better desktop integration through complying with XDG-UTILS as well as support for Debian (deb) package installation. Some of the other new features include supporting multimedia-enabled PDF documents, new tools, updated review tracker, Orca accessibility support, and new additions to the digital ID feature are among the noteworthy improvements.
Hopefully this time around proper support for newer GTK is in place, and it won't eat 100% CPU on startup and will actually shut down on my box... Still I think I'll give it a try.
cannot get HTML rendering

I have even copied to a different directory and adobe accepted that it is there but still refuses to use it on start up. Is there something i have missed?
I am not too sure about your problem, but it could either be a corrupted file, or it could be a problem related to x86_64 architecture. Take this with a grain of salt, but just wanted to help.
Well, just installed it and runs flawlessly, fast, no excessive CPU usage, no problems when closing the program either. And for a 32-bit program, it works pretty much flawlessly on my 64-bit Fedora 7 installation.
Version 8.1.1 is already available on www.debian-multimedia.org repositories.
