when I try to click a link to download a PDF file, it automatically opens file in browser and opens atleast 30 new tabs. In my tool options, I have the download set to "Always ask where to download file to" ... what could be causing this??

I don't know anything about this, especially all those tabs being opened, but suggest that you first check this:

Tools - Options... - Content - Manage...(under File Types) - See what's set for PDF files. Mine, for example, is Open with Adobe Acrobat plug-in. If you want a simple left click on the link to download instead of opening, I'm not sure if you can or what you'd change the Action to.

You might also make sure you have a recent version of whatever you use to open it. Adobe Acrobat reader is now at version 8.1.1, and you should probably have at least version 8 if you use it.
