In acrobat reader 9 - To open the same document in a new tab in the same window, right click the tab, and choose Duplicate Tab then detach tab ( it will open in another window )

In Adobe Reader XI

  • Open your document;
  • Go to the Window => New Window.

Now the first window should be duplicated.
