Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 385831
second pdf loaded displayed fullscreen instead of embeded
Last modified: 2018-04-11 12:32:47 EDT
Description of problem:
When I load a second pdf in epiphany, it is displayed fullscreen, without border
window, instead to fit in the tab page.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Open two pdfs in the same epiphany window using tabs.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a pdf.
2. Open another pdf.
The second pdf is displayed fullscreen, instead of in the tab.
Are you sure this is evince? IMHO, it doesn't display INSIDE of epiphany. Aren't
we talking about Adobe Acrobat Reader?
Moreover, display of PDF is controlled at least partially by variables saved
inside the PDF itself. Could you please copy the first PDF under the different
name and test with that? What happens?
I don't have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed, and from the help->about dialog it
Using the same pdf, with another name as the second pdf result in the same
I was thinking it is a known bug, only that it wasn't reported. Can't you
Also, sometimes evince makes a mess with the scrolled window of the document,
and it is displayed full window, but with the controllers at middle window
Still epiphany doesn't works with two PDFs.
OK, if this isn't Adobe Acrobat, it has to be mozplugger, otherwise epiphany
just doesn't include PDF viewer. Do you have mozplugger installed? Can you
reproduce this without it?
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
$ rpm -q mozplugger evince firefox epiphany
package epiphany is not installed
MozPlugger 1.10.1 handles QuickTime and Windows Media Player Plugin
File name: nswrapper_32_32.mozplugger.so
MozPlugger version 1.10.1, written by Fredrik Hübinette, Louis Bavoil and
For documentation on how to configure mozplugger, check the man page. (type
Configuration file: Not found!
Helper binary: Not found!
Controller binary: Not found!
"man mozplugger" says mozpluggerrc can be located in /etc and a "locate
mozpluggerrc" shows it only in etc.
This is a fresh fedora 9 installation, and epiphany is discarded because it is
not installed and this behaviour still happens.
mozplugger seems to be not correctly configured because the "Not found"
messages, so I would start asking them about it, but I have to say that even
saying that the configuration file is not found, firefox stills embed evince
pdf, the first ok, the second fullscreen (window not decorated).
This looks to me like a mozplugger bug and like bug # 456475 is a duplicate of this.
