Serious Ghost images viewing PDFs on my new Glo

I picked up a Kobo Glo yesterday. After loading it with my books and PDFs I checked out a PDF. I have an issue: ghost images. Typically I view PDFs in landscape view to get the type larger and then scroll down as I read to view the entire page. However, unlike the Kobo Touch, when I drag the page with my finger, a serious ghost image remains, making reading the rest of the page near impossible. I was able to "fix" this problem by setting the e-reader to refresh the screen every single page, but I never had to do this with the older Touch. Is there something wrong with this e-reader, or is this just how this model works? Anybody know? TIA

Thanks Willa. I just tried to upgrade, but it's not. I opened Kobo Desktop and clicked Sync, but when finished, I still have 2.5.2. I've tried it a couple times and removed the Glo from the computer as well. It's still saying 2.5.2.

You can always sideload it if you want to. Go here and follow the instructions in post #1 & #3. Note that Kobo do not support sideloading.
