A) Select "Options --> General Preferences" from the Navigator 2 menu

B) Select "Helpers"

C) Make sure "Acrobat" is somewhere on your list, specifying
each item as needed:

MIME type: Application/PDF
Application: Acrobat
Action: Launch Application
Extensions: PDF

My guess is that your "Action" setting is currently "Save" instead
of "Launch Application".

The usual disclaimers apply - QUALCOMM isn't that crazy.
