IMO...that's a common problem with Adobe Acrobat Reader...it's why I switched to a different program for that function a few years ago.

If you are talking about Acrobat, not Reader...I don't know anything about that, but since it's Adobe software, I would not be surprised if similar problems are exhibited in all Adobe programs.

One of the best is Foxit Reader. And it's free.

Just a note...do not elect the default install for Foxit, use the custom install...otherwise, you wind up installing the Ask toolbar, etc. on your system...which is not recommended. Elect the cusom install and elect not to install the toolbar.
