I have a problem where I wish to open PDF's in Adobe Reader so that I can search through them. When I open them in my web browser (I am using Chrome) under some sites I can't search through them, however, I do like to be able to skim through them in my browser so I wish to keep this functionality.

Is there a way to simply move the PDF from the web browser to Adobe Reader without having to save, choose another path for the document and open it separately?
