Yes.  In fact, that's how we run acroread on that machine -- just a standalone
app with no connection to firefox at all.

I really wish we could use evince instead of acroread.  But....

It all comes down to what you're doing with it.  In our case, nothing other
than acroread is currently up to the job.  Unfortunately.  (Nothing worse than
starting the press run and discovering that an important graphic is missing on

Yes, that really has happened in the past.)
