This seems to be a Acrobat Reader bug rather than a Firefox / Fedora problem.
I'm assuming the original report means 'healthbro.pdf' linked on the page
http://www.littletonps.org/pps.html . I can do 'save as' and then open the file
with evince without problem. Firefox works as advertised.

The Acrobat Reader package from Adobe,  AdobeReader_enu-7.0.8-1, does not seem
to work on FC6. If I run acroread from the command line I get an endless loop of
'expr: syntax error' messages. It seems the launcher script does not work on my
FC6 installation. The same apparently happens if Reader is used as a plugin; the
plugin/Firefox consumes the cpu and hangs until the 'acroread' process is
killed. Firefox does not crash on my system, though.

Okay, please report at Adobe.
