Everything seems to work fine if you don't change readers or scale, and it seems understandable that it will get confused otherwise, because how would it keep track of bookmarks and "last page opened" if you switch back and forth? Adobe has about half the total number of pages as FBreader--why I don't know and so far I see no particular advantage of FBreader.

Anyway, there seem to be some things that you shouldn't do if you want to keep your place in the books you are reading, and it would be nice if PB made these rules clear.
That's why we didn't upload 15.1 for public usage and 15.2 is in beta. Normaly PB handles this kind of treatment without blinking.

The difference between FBReader and Adobe Viewer lies in the fact that FBReader understnds a lot of formats and is very customisable, but does not support DRM. Adobe Viewer does support DRM but is not very flexible.
