Description of problem:
The acrobat reader 7.0 i386.rpm released by Adobe contains the /usr/bin/acroread executable, but does not activate its own mozilla plugin by default.
The shipped /etc/mozpluggerrc lists acroread ahead of xpdf and will execute it with the +useFrontEndProgram option for "don't open in existing instance" behavior, but the name of this option has been changed to -openInNewWindow in acoread 7.0, thus causing acroread to exit.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Adobe acrobat reader 7.0 rpm
2. view URL pointing to PDF file
Actual Results: mozilla shows a blank page
Expected Results: Successful display of PDF file
I suggest trying acroread as a last resort for PDF in /etc/mozpluggerrc, favoring opensource viewers instead. If it is still desirable to support acoread in mozplugger then we should handle the version difference.
