Acrobat Reader 11 - Formatting Issues when copying text from a PDF

I recently upgraded my Firefox plugin from Adobe Reader 10.1.6 to and suddenly I'm having trouble copying text from a PDF and pasting into Word without strange formatting issues. The text dumps into my Word doc with narrow margins and annoying line breaks. Is there something I can do to alleviate this? Someone suggested exporting the PDF as a Word doc, then copying from there but I haven't tried that. Any other suggestions?
