Problems with viewing stored pdf's began immediately following Firefox
crash due to attempting to print a pdf from the referenced web site.
This also caused problems with Nautilus, which crashed spectacularly
when I attempted to access a subdirectory in which some pdf's were
stored. On recovery, I could use Nautilus to access all but the
contents of that one subdirectory; access attempts caused Nautilus to
"freeze". Nautilus sometimes would display the subdirectory with no
contents, other times with the correct contents. ls (in a term) showed
all the expected files and directories in place and statuses looked OK.
Nautilus was happy after I rm-ed all but one of the pdf's.

The referenced website has been used satisfactorily by a friend for some
time. But, she could not print two pdf's from her PowerBook G4 (PowerPC
processor, OS X -- using AOL, not Safari), so she asked me to try, with
