How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start firefox
2. Find a page with a link to a pdf file
3. Click on the link to the pdf file

Why do you expect that to happen ?
Comment 2 Steven Usdansky 2007-05-08 06:40:26 EDT
Two reasons:
1. It used to work that way in Fedora
2. It works that way in Ubuntu
Comment 3 Christopher Aillon 2007-05-08 11:18:29 EDT
Are you sure that it's evince and not Adobe's acroread?

If it ever worked that way, it was a bug.
