this bug is quite similar to bug #125946 but is whith tab opening instead of closing. When viewing a pdf file, opening a new tab with ctl-t isn't possible. Mozilla 1.1 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826
Windows ME Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:1.2a) Gecko/20020908 I was able to open a new tab with Crtl-t and using the File Menu with a PDF document open. Joe
i have to minimize the window first and than i can open i new tab using ctrl-t (via file -> open new tab there is no problem at all)

Summary: ctr-t doesn't open a new tab when viewing a pdf file → CTRL+T doesn't open a new tab when viewing a PDF file
Win XP Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 for me, it doesn't work after i have clicked in the acrobat part of the window, but after switching tabs, then switching back to it, i can hit ctrl-t for a new tab again unless i click on the document again. not the menu part, just the document.
I can confirm. See the previous comment for reproduction. It looks like the problem may be that when you've clicked inside the page, then the acroread.exe app has focus, so of course Ctrl-T doesn't work.

Ever confirmed: true
I can also confirm this, in accordance with the description provided in Comment #4 for Mozilla 1.5, running on Windows NT Sp6a.
Confirmed mozilla 1.6 + acrobat 6 Clicking on the mozilla window should immediately return control of the accelerators to Mozilla away from acrobat or whatever other plugin is running in the browser (but does not).
