    In FF, right click on the webpage, view page source - that might work. :holmes:

    What's the URL? If it's a direct link to the .PDF file, then take off the PDF file name from the end of the URL...

    Example:
    http://www.bl.uk/news/pdf/googlegen.pdf

    Becomes: http://www.bl.uk/news/pdf/

    But in this case it doesn't work because it's blocked. Sometimes it works, expecially with FTPs. :ninja:

    It has to work for FTP links I think, there's no way of blocking it. Though you can make some folders inaccessible of course.
