public PAIR, any way to download complete docs?

When I look at OA's and other documents in public PAIR, I can only access one page at a time.  PAIR also seems to require that I actually click on the link to the document from my browser, which then opens a popup with a third-party PDF viewer, rather than opening the document with Adobe Acrobat as a plugin in the browser window itself.  (That's a good thing to some extent, since Acrobat takes about a week to load a page when running as a plugin, but it's weird since this never happens with any other website I've visited.)
 
Is there any way to download complete documents, e.g., a five page OA, in a single PDF file, to be viewed with Acrobat outside the browser?
 
I've tried passing the URL for the PDF document to "wget", but that just gets me an empty file.  Pasting the same URL into a browser opens the document in the browser (but, again, one page at a time with the weird third-party PDF viewer).
 
Anyone else have the same problem, or is this perfectly normal?  As a corrolary, do I need to exorcise my computer, or is this just the USPTO's way of telling me I should go into cattle ranching instead?

check the box next to each document you want, then scroll to the top and click "download" in the same column.  THis way you get a .pdf file which has a consolidated version of all the files you clicked in one file, with bookmarks.
 
PS:  Let's say there are 20 entries, and you check one and you go to download, the download window that pops up may list the download as 40 megabytes (for example), but that refers to (I think) the total size of everything in that case.  It does not reflect the size of what you are downloading.

Thanks!  Works perfectly.
