From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0) BuildID: 2002042608 The latest build has got the fix to #133751 so that a good majority of Acrobat forms functionality will work again. Yeh! Thank you! Unfortunately, there is a still a lingering, subtle bug associated with forms submits where the submit URL ends with a #FDF. Now you may be wondering why we are appending #FDF to the end of the URL? Well, it is a long, ugly story ... but basically, to make Acrobat forms work in all sorts of browser environements has been challenging (at best) and a lot of hacking (at worst). The #FDF is a secret flag that has been in use for at least five years, unfortunately, and we need to make it work in mozilla. What is happening in the test case I provide below is that mozilla is actually submitting the post data, and the response (in FDF, the forms data format) is coming back, but mozilla is not handing that data off to Acrobat, which is registered as a helper application for FDF. Note in my test cases the it works properly if there is NO #FDF on the Submit URL. It is, therefore, something bizarre about the #FDF that is causing the bug. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Install Acrobat 5 Reader, and Go to the above URL. 2.In the left pane, select "Going From PDF to FDF". This will bring up a PDF file in the right frame with several buttons. 3. First, select the first button "Returns FDF that specifies different PDF, no #FDF in URL". This will bring up a different PDF file in the entire window. 4. Select the back button to return to the first PDF. Now select the second button ""Returns FDF that specifies different PDF, has #FDF in URL". Actual Results: Nothing happens. Expected Results: Brings up second PDF file in the entire window (compare to another browser ... like NS 4.X or IE), just like the first case where there is no #FDF in the URL As I mentioned in my previous discussions about various bugs in mozilla associated with Acrobat forms, Acrobat forms is a huge, growing market for Acrobat. Unfortunately, the use of #FDF is quite common in our forms applications, because it fixes problems associated with gluing forms functionality into various browsers. It is, therefore, critical that this get fixed.
assigning to Peter, putting into 1.1 alpha
For what every magical reason, this is working EXCELLENTLY in today's build! 2002052304. In other words, it no longer appears to be broken. (I will also check the trunk build for today.)
marking WFM based on last comment
yea, it fixed by check in for bug 139572
Serge -- THANK YOU for all of your excellent work. This morning, I took today's build for a spin through our entire Acrobat forms test suite, and except for a remaining problem associated with WWW_OpenURL and DDE (in some cases, it opens the data in the entire window, rather than the same frame ... see bug 115138), it worked FLAWLESSLY! I am thrilled! Yippee!
