Adobe, when I disable JavaScript, STOP SILENTLY RE-ENABLING IT WHEN YOU UPDATE….

Marketing hate it when I refer to competitor blogs, but Sophos' Vanja Svajcer, while discussing Adobe's accelerated security update (good move, guys!), makes a point that's worth three hearty cheers and a quote.

If nothing else, JavaScript should be disabled by default in Adobe Reader.

Go on Adobe, make my day.

Yesssssss!!!!

Though I'd settle for a slightly shorter step towards sanity.

Adobe, when I disable JavaScript, STOP SILENTLY RE-ENABLING IT WHEN YOU UPDATE(yes, I realize that this is because it's restoring defaults, so it's practically the same point: the point is that a sane update takes customizations into account).
