firefox not using acroread

10.04.4 32 bit here.

For some reason I fail to grok, firefox has started using something that 
reminds me of ghostscript back when all it could use were its own fonts.  
That was about the time of ghostscript 4.0 on the amiga IIRC.

This thing doesn't identify itself, cannot make useable printouts thru the 
firefox print preview facility, destroys ugly fonts by screwing with the 
kerning, and in general is a POS.

How can I convince firefox to use acroread?  Or if the reader has too many 
security flaws, can this one be switched to one that actually works?

Thanks all.

Cheers, Gene
