Foxit Reader fans often find annoying advertisement / ads on the toolbar and other places. Though these ads occupy a small space and don’t interfere, but their color scheme is often unmatched. Therefore, it causes a distraction for viewer while reading PDF documents. Most probably, nobody clicks or visits those ads and these are almost of no use rather disturbing the reader. So it’s desirable to get rid of them.
Some people find themselves struggling to get rid of these advertisement pieces, but often end in failure. These ads are opened in every tab, every time you open the program. No matter you click it or not, they are not likely to leave you focused on your work.
