With Mozilla RC2, I started getting PDF files opened into browser window again. Previously, I had configured both IE and Mozilla to fire acrobat reader as an external reader by setting the helper app preference. Apparently Mozilla now scans registry/disk for supported plugins. Acrobat plugin resides in the acrobat directory, not mozilla plugin directory. I have configured acrobat reader NOT to support in-browser viewing but mozilla does not honor this option. I have to read many, many pdf databooks every day, so it's simply not acceptable to have the acrobat plugin crash on me every five datasheets or so. As an external reader, it almost never crashes. Steps: 1. open a datasheet (http://www.onsemi.com/pub/Collateral/2N4401-D.PDF) Expected result: Acrobat starts as an external helper app Actual result: Acrobat starts as a browser plugin Reproducibility: Always.

Are you sure you're not confusing issues? I'm talking about plugin overriding whatever I've specified in the "helper applications" section of the Navigator preferences. Should explicit definition of a helper app override use of a plugin, not the other way around?
