Google-chrome has a builtin pdf editor.

An editor or a viewer?

Aha, chrome://plugins says 'Chrome PDF Viewer'. But why would it allow you to change text fields?

Most PDF viewers can also fill forms but still are not considered as "editors".

But when I select a pdf document, for example from www.irs.gov, and
edit it, it acts as if it is editing it, but when I save it none of the
changes are there.

Anyone have this problem?

Haven't tested it but I know there are PDF files that cannot be saved locally (it's forbidden by policy), they have been done just to be filled and sent online to the remote server (or printed and posted by courier), so ensure this is not such case.

The files from www.irs.gov specifically *can* be saved locally

But I bet you'll need Acrobat Reader, I would first test with it.

But with amd64 that is such a dog :-(

Thanks Camaleón...
