Description David Woodhouse 2005-10-04 05:41:54 EDT
Clicking on PDF files in Firefox doesn't seem to work correctly. After upgrading
to FC4, it would just give me an empty window, and I'd have to save the file and
then click on 'open' to see it.

This mozpluggerrc configuration makes it work a little bit:

text/pdf: pdf: PDF file
text/x-pdf: pdf: PDF file
        swallow(Document Viewer) fill: evince "$file"

However, it works only if evince isn't already running. Otherwise, the window
title isn't 'Document Viewer' and it doesn't get swallowed. And even when it's
swallowed, it doesn't respond to the mozilla window being resized -- it stays
the same size even when the mozilla window grows.

The best answer might be a simple mozilla plugin, or it might be to make
mozplugger and evince work nicely together.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.

I believe this still applies.
