Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 429378
PDF files are not searchable within Firefox w/Adobe Reader addon
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:36 EDT
Adobe reader add-on in firefox does not allow PDF file to be searched. Search
fields will not allow focus thereby preventing the user from entering text.
Firefox 188.8.131.52, Adobe Reader 8.1.1, Fedora 8
If the PDF file is saved to the Desktop and then read with the standard reader
the search fields work correctly.
Apologies, I am not sure if this is called an extension, plug-in, addon,
Do you run adobe reader plugin on x86_64? If so it's a dupe of Bug 388961
At this point, we're going to only be taking security fixes and major stability
fixes into this release of Fedora. However, we still want to ensure the bug is
fixed in the next version. We'd appreciate if you could test Firefox 3,
available at http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html or now shipping
as the default in Fedora rawhide and provide feedback as to whether it still
exists so we can file a ticket upstream to try to fix it in Firefox 3 before it
Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to
investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the
information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not
reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the
Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest
update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be
reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional
Closing as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
[This is a mass-closing request, if you think that this bug shouldn't be closed,
please, reopen with additional information.]
I have downloaded the beta as requested and installed by using the command
'firefox' from /tmp/firefox. When launching firefox, version 2 still loads.
I think it's really a dupe of Bug 388961.
