Acrobat Reader is non-free software, which means the GNU+Linux community
cannot do anything to improve that software.
What's more, even Adobe is no longer supporting that program on
GNU+Linux <URL:https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2273757>. So whatever
problems it has, will likely remain and get worse over time.
So I am not too surprised that it performs badly :-)

The catalogue at <URL:https://pdfreaders.org/> can be useful.
The Evince viewer <URL:https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Evince> is clean and
nice to use, and in the GNOME desktop environment, Evince is the default
Document Viewer program for PDF and many other formats.
You can start with that; I have never needed anything else for PDF since
I started using Evince :-)
