I open a document with "Document Viewer". I read part way through the document. I save the document. I go do something else. I come back and try to open "Document Viewer". I can't find it. I can't find my document. I start yelling at my computer. I start thinking that perhaps Linux us phucked up.

Did you check where you found the original document? Or do you remember under what name you saved the document?

Document Viewer is usually used to read documents which come from the Internet (check your Downloads folder) or from clicking on a file in File Manager.
