If you can only see the first page of an eBook open in Adobe Reader or a new PDF is opened each time you turn an eBook page, this is probably due to a setting in Adobe Reader (or your PDF reader.) To correct this, change your setting to open PDFs within your web browser's window.

 To change this setting in Adobe Reader:  

  1. Launch Adobe Reader.

  2. Click the Edit menu in the top toolbar at the top of Adobe Reader.

  3. Select Preferences from the resulting drop-down list of options.

  4. Select Internet in the left-column of the resulting Preferences menu.

  5. Mark the check box for Display PDF in browser.

  6. Click OK
