We need to know WHAT box. I don't see any box like this. A screen shot is recommended.

My apologies, it seems to be the problem is in the Firefox Browser.  Whenever i opened a document a box would open open and ask "read" in Acrobat and Adobe would open up the document.   A box would also come up for "save".  Something changed in Firefox, i believe, because now when i ask for "read" it not only reads but "Saves"  Then i must go into the Downloads file and Delete all the unwanted documents.  It became frustrating and i thought it was Adobe's problem.  Getting nowehre with Adobe i turned to the community trying to find an easy answer instead of doing my due dilengence research.  Again, my apologies if i have been missleading, or lacking in complete information.
