mozplugger - PDF's fail to load in browser window.
Last modified: 2011-07-05 17:46:27 EDT
Description of problem:
PDF's fail to load in browser window when a PDF link is selected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load firefox browser
2. Navigate to a page with a PDF download link.
3. Click the PDF link
Browser page turns white (blank) then briefly turns black, then white again. PDF is never loaded.
PDF file should load and be viewable from browser window. At least that's the way it has always worked before. Removal of mozplugger at least allows a dialogue box to appear allowing selection to either view PDF with document viewer or download the PDF. I've tried this on 2 machines both running the same versions of firefox and mozplugger.
For what it's worth the same happens on Spot's firefox4 installed on the same machine. (firefox-4.0.1-2.fc14.1686)
Also filed a bug upstream, https://www.mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=23696
I tried a build of the current upstream source (1.14.3) and this bug still persists with the same results.
Ah! More info reveals itself.. It's not mozplugger at all it's nspluginwrapper! I downgraded nspluginwrapper.i686 0:1.3.2-1.fc14 to nspluginwrapper-1.3.0-14.fc14.i686 from koji and the problem went away. PDF's now embed in browser window.
Sorry for the noise, I'll file a bug with nspluginwrapper.
