Description liug 2001-04-24 01:55:50 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)


I upgraded to redhat 7.1 lately and am glad to find mozilla is included.
I was using redhat7.0 with netscape and acrobat reader from powertools.
Now with redhat 7.1, I copied nppdf.so into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, but
about:plugin
doesn't show the pdf plugin. 
By the way, when I use mozilla to report this new bug to your bugzilla
system,
mozilla crashed on me when I clicked "Step 5. Additional Information" ,
probably
it doesn't like me to report its bug :)


Reproducible: Always

the acroread plugin for ns4.x will not work with mozilla.  I believe that
acroread as distributed from adobe does include a mozilla/ns6 plugin, but I
don't think it's packaged with acroread rpms as distributed with redhat
powertools 7.0.
Comment 2 liug 2001-05-11 16:33:01 EDT
just downloaded/installed the acroread from adobe site: linux-ar-405.tar.gz
and I can't find any ns6 plugin file. What file are we talking?
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2001-05-11 16:46:04 EDT
Sorry, I was wrong.  I was thinking of the Sun java plugin when I wrote that
comment.  It turns out that many 4.x plugins don't work with mozilla/ns6, and
acroread looks like one of them.

Hopefully, adobe will make it work with mozilla/ns6 when they finish up acroread
5.0.
