3. Click on one of the PDF's

Additional info:

This bug did not happen with firefox, also it do not happen with the
stock firefox from mozilla.org, so it must be somewhere in the fedora patches
against firefox.

Also there seems to be also a problem with Java plugin (SUN JRE), the plugin
shows up in about:plugins, but refuses to start. This bug seems to be related to
the acroread bug, as this started to happen also after, and also works
with stock firefox.

Please fix this bug asap, it definitly reduces the usability of firefox! And it
is definitly a bug introduces by some Fedora changes, as the stock veron from
mozilla.org did not have this bug.

I can agree that java link causes firefox to crash instantly.

Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2007-04-13 02:39:47 EDT
