Description Randall "Randy" Berry 2011-07-04 23:07:13 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):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load firefox browser
2. Navigate to a page with a PDF download link.
3. Click the PDF link
Actual results:
Browser page turns white (blank) then briefly turns black, then white again. PDF is never loaded.

Expected results:
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. 

Additional info:
For what it's worth the same happens on Spot's firefox4 installed on the same machine. (firefox-4.0.1-2.fc14.1686)

I tried a build of the current upstream source (1.14.3) and this bug still persists with the same results.
Comment 3 Randall "Randy" Berry 2011-07-05 17:46:27 EDT
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.
