Firefox won't swallow evince
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:04 EST
Description of problem:
WHen trying to display a pdf in Firefox, I get a separate evince window instead
of evince embedded in Firefox
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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
Dialog box pops up offering to open the pdf in Document Viewer (default) or
Firefox. Selecting Firefox gives a blank tab and another identical dialog box.
Selecting Document Viewer opens Evince in its own window.
Evince opens in a new Firefox tab
Add-ons installed: Adblock, ColorfulTabs, Diggler, DOM INspector, Duplicate Tab,
Flashblock, Image Zoom, User Agent Switcher,
Why do you expect that to happen ?
1. It used to work that way in Fedora
2. It works that way in Ubuntu
Are you sure that it's evince and not Adobe's acroread?

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